Finding out how and why we use water in our everyday life.
I am investigating why cleanliness expectations are increasing despite our raising awareness of the imperative to save water and energy. To do this I am using domestic water and energy consumption, time use surveys, observations and interviews. This multimodal approach provides a strong base for observing social phenomena's impact on the environment.
