Its Saul Good

Welcome to my personal site!

I am a PhD Fellow from the University of Copenhagen's TALENT Doctoral Fellowship Program, which is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Program, the Rufford Foundation, and People's Trust for Endangered Species (PTES). My research focuses on the illegal and unsustainable wildlife trade and consumer behaviors. I have a special interest in studying the illicit consumption of luxury wildlife products such as rhino horn or tiger bone glue. I aim to advance and combine theories and methods from behavioral economics, social psychology, consumer research, theoretical modelling and simulations, and data science to create a transdisciplinary foundation for studying the multi-faceted aspect of consumer behaviors and managing demand for high zoonosis risk wildlife species.

My publications on the rhino horn trade and consumers have been featured in the award-wining TV documentary "Rhino Dollars" (ARTE France) and the podcast series "Kevin Pietersen: Beast of Man" (BBC Radio 5):
