Nora C.G. Benningstad

PhD candidate

With a background in social- and cultural psychology, I am particularly interested in climate change, intergroup relations, extremism, sustainability, and meat consumption. In my PhD project, I am investigating the nexus of violent extremism and climate change. Specifically, my focus is on how climate change and violent extremism may reinforce each other or intersect, thereby leading to intergroup conflict between different ethnic and cultural groups.

Prior to my current research, I have been involved in various research areas, working on topics such as cross-cultural adaptation, animal-meat dissociation, and meat consumption. As a research assistant, I participated in a meta-analysis aiming to identify cross-cultural adaptation antecedents. I have also researched the discomfort associated with recognizing the link between meat and animals, as well as opportunities to reduce meat consumption.
