Understanding the mind and human behaviour within a scientific context has been a lifelong passion. So much so that, before moving into education, it led to me working as a Research Psychologist with the University of Liverpool and then later as a Psychologist within the National Health Service, providing interventions and therapies for individuals experiencing psychological distress and mental illness, I have a particularly keen interest in the psychology of teaching and learning, as it enables us to understand the social, emotional and cognitive processes that underpin lifelong learning.
Here at ISM, I look forward to imparting my knowledge and passion for psychology to the students. I hope to be able to help students develop an understanding of the core principals of psychology and, more importantly, I am keen to encourage students to develop their critical thinking and analytical skills.
My philosophy is 'Believing in one’s dreams, leads to big ideas which can lead to innovations and changes for the future’’- Dare to Dream!
Other than my immense passion for my specialist subject, I also enjoy the Arts, travelling and keeping fit regularly (weight training, boxing, spinning and running are just a few of my physical pursuits).
I am really excited about taking in the beautiful culture of Moscow, exploring it’s scenic views, which may well turn into a painted canvas and a personal treasure on one of my walls!
