About me

Edoardo Zulato is currently an LSE Fellow in the Department of Psychological and Behavioural Science (PBS), where he teaches Political Psychology (MSc) and Organisations, Groups and Identity (BSc). Edoardo obtained his PhD in Social Psychology at the University of Milano-Bicocca and his MSc in Social and Cultural Psychology at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Edoardo’s primary research focuses on how individuals – as members of groups, communities, and institutions – make sense of new challenges and crises, such as liminal hotspots. In investigating this, his research dwells on various areas and topics, including the social representations of health and illness, the public understanding of science and technology, and gender identities. In particular, Edoardo is interested in understanding how different discourses and narratives shape common sense, laws, and government policies, which – in turn – can support or hinder social change. Furthermore, as a consultant, Edoardo developed expertise in participatory research methods to investigate organisational culture, group dynamics and communication.
