Dr Peter Slattery

Research Fellow

Efficiency geek and award winning content creator

Peter is experienced with a broad range of qualitative and quantitative research techniques, including literature reviews, conceptual papers, interviews, experiments, surveys and structural equation modelling. He has a PhD in Information Systems from the University of New South Wales and several years of experience with teaching, entrepreneurship, product development and community building.

Peter is particularly interested in optimising the flow of important knowledge from research into practice, and the flow of research ideas and needs in the opposite direction. This has led him to set up The Rapid Effective Action Development Initiative (READI) to pursue critical but neglected research topics.

At BWA he has worked on a wide range of projects including hackathons, and areas such as health, diet, social inclusion, climate adaptation and waste reduction. In 2020 and 2021 he worked extensively on Covid-19 related behaviour change as part of the SCRUB project. He has also written extensive content for our blog and featured widely in the media.

In his personal time, he is interested in effective altruism, vegan food, walks on the beach, self-improvement, hiking and surfing badly.

Peter has won an award for his behavioural science posts on Linkedin so we recommend that you follow him there for insights and updates. You can read an interview with him here.
