|Alexander Maki, PhD Social Psychologist||
I'm a scientist and educator, investigating why people protect the natural environment, why they help one another, and why they take care of their health.
Currently, I'm an interdisciplinary postdoctoral researcher with the Vanderbilt Institute for Energy and Environment and the Climate Change Research Network. My doctoral training was in social psychology, with an emphasis in quantitative methods, at the University of Minnesota.
