More Details about Jan Gutteling:


Currently I am an Associate Professor of Crisis and Risk Communication at Twente University, in Enschede, the Netherlands. My research focuses on the understanding of risk perception and the application of this understanding in crisis and risk communication. Studies are aimed at (1) developing (social psychological) models of risk-related behaviour, or at (2) establishing how and under which circumstances risk communication influences risk-related behaviour. Recent themes are water safety management (flood risks), fire hazard management, crowd management, and technology-delivered first emergency warnings (cell broadcast).
