Dr Joan Harvey
- Email: email@example.com
I am a chartered psychologist who qualified in the area of occupational psychology. My special area of research interest involves transport psychology including risk and safety. I have also been involved in a major programme funded by the EU which involves cross-cultural psychology applied to engineering designers from different countries working collaboratively. I am located in the School of Mechanical and Systems Engineering.
I teach ergonomics/human systems integration and work psychology.

Transport Psychology, including driver behaviour: risk perception and driver boredom and attitudes
Risk perception and risk taking: in relation to health, safety culture and risky behaviour at work. The study of risk emanated from research into safety culture in the nuclear and other industries and people'e perceptions of health risks such as those associated with BSE.
I have recently been involved in work for the European Union [FP6] which includes the development of a cross-cultural assimilator which can be accessed by people in small and medium engineering design companies in many different countries so they can understand how cultural differences are reflected in different behaviours and understandings; this is a development of my earlier work on cross-cultural differences.
Consumer Psychology: including perception of and attitudes to value and prices, charitable giving, humour in advertising, attitudes to various product groups including perfumes, organic and fair trade foods, and a particularly focus is upon people's attitudes, beliefs and perceptions of energy, recycling, waste and sustainability.
In addition to my research into safety culture and safety performance, I have research experience in absenteeism from work, stress at work and attitudes such as job satisfaction, commitment and trust in the workplace.
I work using both qualitative and quantitative research methods, such as attitude scales, Repertory Grid, attribtutional analysis of interviews etc..
