I am a Senior Lecturer in Psychology and an experienced 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 Culture and Social Psychology Research Collaborative.

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.
