About me

PhD Topic: Temporal fluctuations in moral behaviours

PhD Supervisors: Dr Jet Sanders and Dr Matteo M Galizzi

Audrey is a behavioural scientist whose research focuses on the temporal variation in dishonest behaviors. She studies how the day of the week and the hour of the day affect people's level of honesty. She employs a variety of tools to observe dishonest behaviors, including Google Trends and online cheating games. This approach avoids relying on self-reported measures, which can be inaccurate. 

In addition to her research, Audrey is a part-time Talent and Learning Partner for Christian Aid, an international NGO fighting global poverty. In this role, she is involved in: 

- Defining and rolling out value-based behaviours for all staff

- Designing and delivering a leadership programme for senior management 

Audrey holds an MSc in Behavioural Science from the London School of Economics, with a dissertation on mothers' vaccination intentions. She also has an MSc in Management from the University of Louvain-la-Neuve in Belgium.
