Laura Piscicelli is a post-doctoral researcher at University of Twente (The Netherlands) and she is completing her PhD in Sustainable Consumption at Nottingham Trent University (UK). Her PhD study investigated the role of values in the acceptance, adoption and diffusion of collaborative consumption by combining insights from social psychology and social practice theory. The resulting theoretical framework provided the basis for the later development of the DIP Toolkit. Laura holds an MSc in Product-Service System Design and a BSc in Industrial Design from Politecnico di Milano (Italy). Her research interests include consumer behaviour, design for behaviour change, product-service systems and the circular economy.
