Lecturer in Social Psychology and Security Studies, King's College London

Julia Pearce is a Lecturer in Social Psychology and Security Studies in the Department of War Studies at King's College London. Her research uses social psychological theories of risk perception and health behaviour to examine the impact of risk and crisis communication on risk perception and behaviours, with a focus on extreme events such as terrorism and pandemics. She is particularly interested in understanding the likely reactions, needs and appropriate communication strategies for groups who may be particularly vulnerable during an emergency.
