Profile

Professor Will Tiemeijer’s research interests center on the interconnections between behavioural science, politics and government.

He is particularly interested in how the psychological lens can contribute to a better understanding of today’s major societal problems and the normative issues and ethical dilemmas this psychological focus brings into view.
