Adrian Bangerter is a professor of work psychology at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. His research is on coordination processes in conversation, especially how people use conversation to coordinate multiple and parallel activities and interruptions, as well as the relationship between pointing gestures and language. In addition, Bangerter does research on interactions between recruiters and applicants in personnel selection, as well as the cultural transmission of knowledge and popular beliefs, with a particular emphasis on how scientific knowledge spreads in popular culture, and how it gets transformed in the process. His current interests in this area focus on how the public makes sense of emerging infectious diseases as well as what makes conspiracy theories increasingly appealing to various segments of the public. Bangerter studied psychology at the University of Lausanne, Switzerland, obtained a PhD in psychology from the University of Berne, Switzerland, and has worked as a lecturer at the University of Basel, Switzerland, and as a postdoctoral researcher at Stanford University.
