Kirsti M. Jylhä, PhD


I am a researcher in social and political 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 to climate action (e.g., climate change denial) 

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
