Willingness to take PhD students
Matthew Bennett has experience in two main substantive research areas, prosocial behaviour which includes areas of:
Cross-national predictors of volunteering, giving, and informal help
Neighbourhood effects on volunteering and giving
School effects on civic engagement among youths
Health outcomes of volunteering and giving among adult and youth populations
And intergroup relations and group solidarity, in particular the neighbourhood effects on religious and national identity.
Dr Bennett welcomes enquiries from doctoral researchers interested in either of these areas.
