Marcia Frezza

Marcia Frezza is a visiting researcher at the Center for Technology and Society (ZTG), developing studies for her doctoral degree at ZTG/TU-Berlin.  Her doctoral project aims to investigate socio-psychological aspects involved in the process of adopting more sustainable behaviour.  The field research prioritises workplaces that have developed sustainability and innovation programmes.  Marcia Frezza’s Master studies were in Social and Institutional Psychology.  The focus of her thesis was concentrated on practices of two social programmes/government policies, one in Brazil and another in UK, which were aimed to the so called vulnerable young people from both countries.  Her first degree was in Psychology.  In Brazil, she works for the University of Fortaleza - UNIFOR (Universidade de Fortaleza), CE, where, among other activities, she lectures at the Psychology Programme and at the Environmental Engineering Programme.  She also integrates a research group (LERHA), at the Post-graduate Programme in Psychology at UNIFOR.  LERHA concentrates its studies on the interactions developed between people and the environment, concerning psychological, social, cultural and physical factors.
Marcia Frezza returned to Brazil in August 2018.
