Research lines and topics for perspective PhD students:

1 - Risk perception: How emotional intelligence and psychophysiology influence people's perception of risk, particularly in relation to climate change.

2 - Altruism and prosocial behavior: How people decide whether to make a donation and to help others or not with a particular focus on the tradeoff between perceived cost for the donor and benefit for the recipients.

3 - Complexity: How we can make people aware of the global nature of the challenges facing humanity (e.g., climate change, immigration, nuclear war, economic crisis, pandemics, and AI) and willing to engage on the right actions to manage the risk related to these challenges.

4 - Fake news: What are the reasons why people believe in fake news and what psychological processes (e.g., emotion regulation, beliefs, open-mindedness, risk perception) can be used to debunk this type of information.
