Associate Professor in Social Psychology
As a lecturer at the University of Rennes 2, his research focuses on the study of the interaction between social and psychological factors that influence thinking, beliefs and social behaviors when individuals or groups encounter situations that may be perceived as uncertain, risky or extreme. In a more applied way, he is interested in the processes of social and cognitive adaptation to environmental risks (e.g., climate change), health or biological risks (emerging infectious diseases, antibiotic resistance, vaccine hesitancy), societal risks (terrorism and radicalization), and the uncertainties related to these situations. Co-director of the Master's degree in "Violence, Risks and Vulnerabilities" at the University of Rennes 2, Sylvain Delouvée is also the author of numerous scientific articles and several books, including the recent "Le Complotisme. Cognition, Culture and Society" (Mardaga editions, co-authored with Sebastian Dieguez).
