About Dr Bull’s Research
Richards’s research interests involve public engagement and behaviour change. In recent years Richard has focused on merging these interests with energy and buildings after becoming part of the Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development. Richard is also interested in using social media to get further participation in exploiting the impact that the energy usage buildings have. By sharing these ideas and creating awareness tools for the public, Richard can begin to create a better learning and living environment.
