Dr James Rubin


Reader in the Psychology of Emerging Health Risks

Theme 1 - Protecting wellbeing during and after a major incident

King's College London

Dr James Rubin is interested in public perceptions of, and reactions to, modern health risks.

He had led a programme of research at King’s assessing public responses to public health crises, with funding from the Home Office, Cabinet Office, NIHR and European Union.

This research began with the London bombings in July 2005 and developed into a programme of work using rapid turn-around, population-based surveys to assess the psychological impact of public health crises, including the outbreak of swine flu, the Alexander Litvnenko affair, the 2007 North of England flooding and the Fukushima nuclear power plant catastrophe.

Dr Rubin is the Assistant Director (King's) for our Unit.
