Project title: Communicating air pollution as a health risk – Towards a participatory approach

Diana’s interdisciplinary research aims at bridging natural science, social and health disciplines and identifying the benefits of involving lay individuals in the research process. In the context of air pollution, her research presents an important contribution to understand and identify methods that allow us to ensure that complex risks are accurately assessed, and subsequently communicated to lay members of the public in an effective and engaging way.
