Talbot M. Andrews
Talbot Andrews’ research focuses on how institutions, public policy, and the physical environment shape preferences and behavior related to climate change. She uses a combination of experiments, public opinion data, and formal theory to answer questions such as: When do people believe in climate change? When are they willing to support climate change mitigation policies? She is also more broadly interested in political psychology, and how public opinion is shaped by disasters.
Talbot Andrews completed her Ph.D. in political science at Stony Brook University and her BA in political science and psychology at the University of Portland. Prior to joining UConn, she was a postdoctoral research associate at Princeton University in the Center for the Study of Democratic Politics. Her work has been published in journals such as Nature Climate Change, Global Environmental Change, and Political Behavior.
