  • Lecturer
  • IOE - Psychology & Human Development
  • UCL Institute of Education

I am currently employed as a Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Social Psychology at the Psychology and Human Development department at UCL IOE. Before my current post, I was at Birmingham City University, University of Essex and the University of Nottingham, from which I also obtained my PhD. In addition, I was a policy advisor and scientific officer for an international organisation.

Research Summary

My research lies in the area of experimental social psychology, cross-cultural and contextual cognitive differences, and human motivation. I have extensively researched individualism and collectivism as cultural, group and individual constructs in intrinsic motivation. Furthermore, I have been involved in research that examines the cognitive, behavioural and emotional effects of different existential and contextual environmental norms. I hold a strong interest in investigating the psychological effects of controlling environments in educational and other settings.

Currently, I am in the process of developing a research programme in the Social and Cultural Psychology of Education.

Teaching Summary

My teaching is being informed by research (and vice versa). I am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. As an academic, I strive to provide a practice-led and research-informed learning experience to undergraduate and postgraduate students to facilitate a learning environment that utilises cutting-edge pedagogical methods so that students can flourish and fulfil their ambitions and potentials.
