I completed my MSc in Research Methods in Psychology at the University of Reading. l am interested in general how we perceive risk and how our emotions affect risk estimation process. The focus of my Ph.D. is to investigate the impacts of emotion-induced risk-messages on receiver’s risk estimation under the influence of one’s current specific emotion. I will examine this process focusing on health-related risk-messages.
The results of this study will help the implication of risk communication in health by suggesting which specific emotions are likely to be evoked in a particular risk communication context. This research will contribute to a deeper understanding of the effect of emotion on risk perception and judgment.
