Rosemary Snelgar graduated from Keele University and later returned for a PhD in visual psychophysics. She continued vision research in posts at Keele, Aston University and University of Bristol, before her lectureship. At Westminster, Rosemary changed the area of her research. Her main research interests are now in the area of environmental psychology, particularly: social psychological aspects of pro-environmental behaviours (from recycling to activism); values, beliefs and attitudes that underlie concern for the environment. Rosemary's teaching is mainly in research methods and statistics in psychology, and environmental psychology, for undergraduates and MSc students. She also teaches a short course, on using AMOS graphics for structural equation modelling, to academics and research students from other Universities.
