@ Rouvan Doran
Rouven Doran, PhD, is associate professor in general psychology at the Department of Psychosocial Science, Faculty of Psychology, University of Bergen. His research focuses on the topics of social influence, risk perception, and mental models, as well as their respective roles in shaping behavioural responses to environmental problems. This includes factors explaining differences in public engagement with climate change, both within and across countries. Current projects address the public perception of pathways to low-carbon energy transitions, emotional and behavioural responses in relation to media exposure about climate change, as well as motivations for sustainable consumption behaviour in different settings.
