I'm currently interested in: (1) social roots and psychological implications of time perspective; (2) intervention of social-psychological determinants in access to social benefits and in health behaviors; (3) Applicability of social psychology and behavioral sciences for urban and UX design, policy making and collective action.

I'm the Founder of the Master program in Applied Social Psychology at the University of Lyon, and co-founder and former coordinator of the International Network on Time Perspective (

Here are some of my recent research projects:


-- How and why do people engage in pro-environmental behaviors? A socio-psychological standpoint

--Boundaries and perspectives in political involvement: temporal distance, frames and trajectories.

--Cross-cultural study of time perspective (CCTP), with A. Sircova (Sweden), F. Van De Vijver (The Netherlands), E.Osin (UK), Taciano L. Milfont (New Zealand) & A. Kislali (Turkey)

--Sustainable behaviors in everyday life: Insights form Time Perspective and Construal Level theories
