Its Saul Good

Welcome to my personal site!

I am a PhD graduate from the University of Copenhagen's TALENT Doctoral Fellowship Programme, which is co-funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. My research focuses on the wildlife trade, consumer behaviour, economic valuation, and social marketing. I have a special interest in studying the illegal and unsustainable wildlife trade and the consumption of high-value wildlife products. I aim to advance and combine theories and methods from neoclassical and behavioural economics, social psychology, consumer research, theoretical modelling and simulations, and data science to create a transdisciplinary foundation for studying consumer behaviour with environmental and public health implications.

My research on the trade and consumption of rhino horn and tiger bone have been featured in the award-wining TV documentary "Rhino Dollars" (ARTE France), the podcast series "Kevin Pietersen: Beast of Man" (BBC Radio 5), and various interviews with BBC Natural History, BBC Wildlife Magazine, and the Danish Broadcasting Corporation (DR):
