ABOUT

Matthew BallewI am deeply passionate about human rights, environmental issues, and mental health. My general areas of specialization include social psychology, environmental psychology, research methodology, and program evaluation. I am currently a research affiliate at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication where I did my postdoc, and I was an Assistant Professor at at Chapman University in Orange, CA. Check out my research page to read more about my research interests and work. Some of my favorite places in the world are Alaska, the Pacific Northwest, and the Michigan UP (I’m a Michigander born and raised in the suburbs outside Detroit). I also like to document the beauty of the world–check out my photographs!
