ABOUT

Matthew BallewI am deeply passionate about human rights and environmental issues. In general, my areas of specialization include social psychology, environmental psychology, and environmental communication. I am an Assistant Professor at at Chapman University in Orange, CA and a research affiliate at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication where I did my postdoc. Check out my research page to read more about my research interests and work. In my leisure time, I usually have to be outside. Some of my favorite places to visit are the Pacific Northwest, Alaska, and northern Michigan (I’m a Michigander born and raised in Metro Detroit). I also like to document the beauty of the world in the form of pictures–check out some of my photographs here!
