Personal profile

Research interests

Olivia Brown is an Assistant Professor in Organizational Behaviour at the University of Bath, School of Management. Liv’s research sits at the intersection of psychology and behavioural science, aiming to understand how intra- and inter-group processes influence individual and group behaviour in online and offline settings. For instance, Liv studies high-reliability organisations to understand what factors support teamwork in extreme and challenging settings and has conducted extensive research examining how online communications data might be used to predict and understand behaviour offline.  She is especially interested in how online interactions can influence offline behaviour, with a focus on extremism and terrorism.

Liv is a member of the leadership team for the Bath Institute of Digital Security and Behaviour, part of the research stream for the Centre for Research and Evidence on Security Threats (CREST) and a member of the Bath Beacon, The Value of Data, considering how the cultural, economic, and psychological value of digital traces can deliver positive societal impacts.
