As a Behavioural Consulting Lead at Cowry, April helps clients to solve business problems using behavioural science. April has been studying the field of human behaviour for nearly a decade, and holds degrees in Psychology and Behaviour Change. At the University of St Andrews she focussed on how evolutionary forces have shaped modern day behaviour and conducted research on facial perception. During her master’s degree at UCL she wrote a thesis on how behavioural science could be used to enhance cyber security in the Internet of Things. Recently, April co-authored Ripple with Jez Groom, which brings to life how small nudges from behavioural science can snowball into big effects for businesses.
