Research Associate
Science
Inst. Climate Risk & Response

I completed my PhD in February 2023 at Macquarie University in the field of Cognitive Science, with a specific focus on the relationship between reasoning processes and everyday beliefs. Currently, I am a research associate at the University of New South Wales, specifically, at the Institute for Climate Risk and Response (ICRR), where I am engaged in diverse projects centered around decision-making, risk perception, and policy communication in the context of climate change. In my research, I employ a range of methodologies, including online and lab-based experimental and behavioral techniques. Additionally, I use statistical methods, such as hierarchical Bayesian models, to gain comprehensive insights into the research outcomes.
