Dr Jamie Wardman is an Assistant Professor of Risk Management. Jamie's research is primarily focussed on the theory and practice of risk communication as this relates to such issues as organisational operations, science and technology controversies, emergency preparedness, crisis response, public policy, and health and safety.

He is particularly interested in how sociocultural perspectives on risk and its representation can help inform risk management policy design, operations and evaluation. Most recently Jamie's projects have addressed: advances in digital technologies and their risk management and sustainability uses and impacts; the identification and management of 'ethical risks' such as slavery in supply chains; and issues surrounding transparency and the communication of uncertainty.

Jamie has previously held research and teaching posts at King's College London, The University of Lincoln, and The University of Hong Kong. He is currently the Managing Editor of the Journal of Risk Research. He also serves as a Board Member of the Society for Risk Analysis - Europe, and as a Committee Member of the Society for Risk Analysis Risk Communication Speciality Group
