Dr. Brooke Rogers is a Reader in Risk and Terror in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London where she co-directs the MA in Terrorism, Security and Society. Dr. Rogers is a social psychologist interested in risk and crisis communication, perceptions of risk, and health outcomes in response to extreme events. The majority of her projects investigate public and practitioner responses to chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) terrorist incidents (i.e. Home Office, PIRATE, CIE Toolkit, PRACTICE and Deloitte). Others, such as the EPSRC/ESRC funded projects, Safer Spaces, investigate the public acceptability of counter terror technologies, communication and activities in public spaces, while Resilient Futures focuses on protecting the critical national infrastructure.
