Research interests

My PhD project focuses on flood risk management using nature-based solutions (NBS), particularly about people's perceptions. I work with the constructs inspired by the theories related with place and risk (e.g. sense of place and protection motivation theory). I am interested in both quantitative and qualitative analysis.
