Mark Boulet

Mark Boulet completed Masters of Environmental Science at Monash University and his undergraduate studies at the University of Melbourne and the Australian National University. He is currently a part-time PhD candidate looking at issues of household food waste and consumer behavior. Mark’s background is in environmental sustainability and education. He has worked as an environmental educator in Thailand, developed recycling and green purchasing systems for universities, and engaged householders in sustainable living initiatives. He is particularly proud of the six years he spent managing and growing, the multi-award-winning Green Steps training program for university students at the Monash Sustainable Development Institute. In 2011, Mark was awarded an Australian Leadership Award by the prestigious Australian Davos Connection Forum. As a BWA Research Fellow, he has worked on a range of projects involving the design of behavioural change interventions to tackle issues such as food waste, noise pollution, sustainable transport, stormwater pollution and wildlife management. Mark is also coordinator of the Understanding human behaviour to influence change unit within Monash’s Master of Environment and Sustainability. This has been recognised three times as being amongst the top 7% of all Monash subjects based on outstanding student feedback. Mark tries hard not to bore people with endless tales of trail running, camping, hiking and outdoor gear. Sadly, he is not always successful.
