Anna Scolobig

Senior research associate

I am a disaster and risk researcher with social science background. In my work I address questions related to risk perception, communication, disaster management and climate policy. For example I examine how different individuals perceive natural risks, what risk reduction measures they support or oppose and why, and what actions they are willing to take to address this risk. My research also supports decision-making through processes that integrate technical options and stakeholder perspectives
