I studied Psychology and Cultural Studies at the Humboldt-University Berlin, Germany. I received my PhD from the University of Leipzig, Germany in the area of Work and Organisational Psychology and Social Psychology. Furthermore, I acquired a psychotherapeutic qualification in Logotherapy/Existential Analysis. Before joining Kingston University, I conducted research at the University of Leipzig, Germany and for London Business School.
I have been teaching in Higher Education for 12 years, I am Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), and I am currently fulfilling the role of course director for part-time students on the MSc Occupational and Business Psychology.
I am a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol), Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society (AFBPsS), and a member of its Division of Occupational Psychology.
Associate Professor in Work Psychology
