Research Assistant, Department of Social Anthropology
Eleonora graduated from a Social Anthropology Master’s of Research from St Andrews University in 2020, after taking an undergraduate degree in Clinical-Cognitive Psychology in Italy. She has always been interested in social dilemmas and issues, conducting research on rape and victim blaming for her undergraduate dissertation. More recently, her fieldwork in St Andrews took place in several local groups connected with sustainable activity. Through participant observation and open interviews, her MRes dissertation aimed at investigating the association inbetween the present pandemic and the lifestyles and beliefs of people involved in climate action, in connection with religion and personal expectations. Currently, she is a primary school teacher as well as a team member of ‘Eco Worrier, Eco Warrior’, a research project at the University of St Andrews which is focused on Climate Anxiety in Britain, tackling the feelings and ideas of the general public.
