Viktoria Cologna's research addresses questions about the role of (climate) scientists in society. From a social-psychology perspective, she analyzes the role of trust in scientists for the uptake of climate-friendly behaviours, the perceived legitimacy of climate scientists' engagement in the public sphere and how engagement of climate scientists affects their credibility. She is interested in taking these empirical findings as a starting point for a broader historical and philosophical discussion on the legitimacy of (climate) scientists in the public sphere.
