Naara Ulmke

Public Governance and Management

Naara Ulmke is a PhD candidate at Utrecht University’s School of Governance. As part of the RadiUnce project, she strives to understand how politicians view and react to uncertainty. Deciding on questions that one cannot – per definition - have sufficient information about can be a psychologically challenging task. Utilizing her background in social psychology, Naara will examine how politicians’ interindividual differences in affect, cognition, and personality can explain different evaluations of and reactions to (radical) uncertainty.
