I am an Assistant professor at the Communication & Media research group, part of the Behavioural Science Institute. I’m interested in science communication.

Sometimes we hold beliefs that are not based on scientific information, for instance regarding climate change, vaccination, and food safety. Even when we are faced with scientific evidence we don't change our minds. Why do we sometimes stick to our beliefs? And how can science be communicated to give it a fair chance in discussion of such topics?
