Kirsti M. Jylhä, PhD

Welcome!

I am a researcher in social and personality psychology. My research is generally focused on studying the interplay of social and psychological factors in influencing attitudes, ideological worldviews, and behavior. Currently, I am investigating:

1) Psychological obstacles and drivers of climate engagement (e.g., climate change emotions and beliefs) 

2) Psychological and social factors explaining the re-emerge of the radical right in Europe over the past decades

3) Opinions and feelings related to the ongoing coronapandemic (COVID-19), and how the pandemic influences attitudes and behavior at individual and societal levels
