He holds a BA in Anthropology from the Universidad de los Andes (Colombia) and an MA in Cultural Studies from Goldsmiths College, University of London. He also works as a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the MSc in Psychology of Economic Life at LSE.
Before coming to LSE, Paulius worked for almost 6 years as researcher and manager of behavioural change projects with public institutions and social organizations in Colombia, his home country. This included posts as Research Assistant for the former Mayor of Bogotá Antanas Mockus and most recently as Head of the Cultural and Behavioural Change Team at the agency of the Colombian government in charge of public governance and employment at a national level (http://www.funcionpublica.gov.co).
Paulius’ PhD research project uses SEBE to explore how behavioural change interventions based on social norms can be used to tackle real world problems. Specifically, he is focusing on how Installation Theory and narrative persuasion can make traditional social norms interventions more effective in real world contexts.
