Nina is a post-doctoral researcher who is working on the public perception of environmental risks in the frame of two Horizon Europe projects. As part of GOLIAT, she is using in-depth qualitative interviews to explore experts' and non-experts' mental models of the impact of 5G technology on people's health.

In addition, as part of SOS_ZEROPOL, she is conducting a large quantitative survey in several European countries to capture public perceptions of threats and solutions related to different environmental pollutants, from microplastics to underwater noise.
