Dr. Mirjam Jenny joined the department of health communication at the University of Erfurt at the beginning of this year. Born in Switzerland, she is a psychologist, cognitive decision scientist, recognized expert for science communication and will serve as Head of Science2Society in the future.

My goal is to empower individuals and organizations to make evidence–informed, risk savvy, and sustainable decisions in our globalized and increasingly digitalized world.
