I am a Lecturer in Psychology and a registered psychodynamic therapist working in private practice. In line with this, my teaching and research activities take place at the intersection between social psychology and psychotherapy/counselling, with my interest lying in the broad issue of how human beings relate to each other. I am also a member of the Psychotherapy and Counselling Research Group as well as the convenor of the Social Psychology Research Group.

I am presently interested in the relationship between psychotherapy and the social sciences/psychology, looking into both the former's possible contribution to understanding psycho-social phenomena and the latter's elucidation of therapeutic outcome and process.
In addition, I am also looking at Stanley Milgram's (in)famous bedience experiments, with a particular focus on the much-neglected and highly ambiguous role the learner/victim played in the procedure.
