Samuel Domingos has a master’s degree in Work and Organizational Psychology from the University of Évora. Currently he is a PhD candidate in the Lisbon PhD in Social Psychology program (LiSP) at ISPA – Instituto Universitário. His research focuses on the psychosocial processes involved in human appraisals (e.g., judgment) of the demands (e.g., danger; effort; and uncertainty) posed by extreme events (natural and man-made) and the available resources (e.g., knowledge, abilities, skills; dispositions; and support) to cope with them. This research seeks to advance understanding about human’s psychosocial resilience and adaptation strategies when faced with extreme events, and derive implications for risk and disaster communication.
