Tina Robson (she/her)

PhD Researcher at University of Sunderland

My research is focused on the biopsychosocial impact of nature based interventions within social prescribing for those with, or at risk of, non communicable diseases. I’m looking forward to seeing the BrEPS community grow and hope that it provides opportunities to connect, learn, share and further develop the Environmental Psychology field.


Tamala Anderson (she/her)

Post-Graduate Researcher at the University of Surrey

People-place relationships are at the heart of my research investigating the psychological benefits of place attachment. With a background in architecture, I am eager to support interdisciplinary efforts and hope that through a strong BrEPS community the awareness of environmental psychology broadens.


Valentine Seymour (she/her)

Senior researcher at University of Portsmouth and Lecturer at University of Surrey

Valentine is a Senior Researcher at the University of Portsmouth and teaches at the University of Surrey. Valentine’s research interests focus on the interface between human health, policy and the natural environment, more specifically the inter relationships between various stakeholder groups and the natural environment.

Lauren Bennett (she/her)

PhD Researcher at University of Sunderland

My research focuses on mindfulness and nature interventions for reducing stress and anxiety in higher education students, with a focus on cognition and an aim to identify how the interventions could be combined. My hope is that BrEPS will develop a community of people with similar interests and provide a platform for sharing ideas and engaging discussions.
