Kathryn Williams's Profile Picture
Prof

Kathryn Williams

 

Kathryn Williams is Professor in environmental psychology at the University of Melbourne. Her research is concerned with the psycho-social dimensions of environmental management, particularly the emotional and cognitive factors that shape conservation behaviour and public response to environmental policy and management, and the psychological benefits of nature experience.

Her cross-disciplinary research is grounded in partnerships with environmental agencies concerned with forest management and urban greening. Professor Williams’ teaching mirrors her research priorities: applied environmental psychology, social research methods, and knowledge integration for environmental professionals. She is Editor (People and Trees) for Forestry: An International Journal of Forest Research. Between 2012 and 2017 Kathryn was Director of the Office for Environmental Programs, overseeing the University’s large cross-faculty, interdisciplinary coursework program the Master of Environment.
