Bostrom Produces New Research on Where and From Whom Scientific Uncertainty Comes
Posted: 9/8/2023 (CSDE Research)
CSDE Affiliate Ann Bostrom, along with co-authors, has published new research in the latest edition of the International Journal of Disaster Risk Reduction entitled, “Where does scientific uncertainty come from, and from whom? Mapping perspectives of natural hazards science advice”. The science associated with assessing natural hazard phenomena and the risks they pose contains many layers of complex and interacting elements, resulting in diverse sources of uncertainty. This creates a challenge for effective communication, which must consider how people perceive that uncertainty. Conducting twenty-five mental model interviews in Aotearoa New Zealand, the authors explore further questions about scientific processes and their personal philosophy of science. Fantastic work, Dr. Bostrom!
