Dr. Leiserowitz's research examines the role of underlying psychological, socio-cultural, and geographic factors in risk perception, decision-making and behavior. Recent projects include a series of survey and experimental studies at the state, national, and global scales on public risk perceptions and responses to global climate change; an examination of global values, attitudes and behaviors regarding sustainable development; and the theoretical development and empirical demonstration of distinct "interpretive communities of risk" among the American public.
