I am a Cross-cultural Psychologist with a PhD from Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand (awarded in 2011). I joined the research centre Cis_ISCTE at the end of 2011 as a Marie Curie Research Fellow after a 1-year postdoc at the University of Kent, UK. I am an Assistant Professor at ISCTE since 2019.   I am very interested in the relation between the individual and the larger society and how characteristics of the social, cultural and physical environment are related to individuals´ well-being, moral beliefs and intergroup relations. As such, my work usually integrates theories and insights from different disciplines, such as Sociology, Anthropology, and Political Sciences (apart from Psychology).  My current research projects focus on age discrimination towards younger workers in different cultures as well as the issue of subtle discrimination (also referred to as microaggression) towards ethnic minorities in different societies.    I am teaching courses at Bachelor and Master level on research methods, (cross-)cultural psychology, and intercultural relations. From 2016 to 2021, I also coordinated the funded Erasmus Mundus programme “European Master in the Psychology of Global Mobility, Inclusion and Diversity in Society” (Global-MINDS) which is a joint master programme delivered by an international consortium of partner universities. Global-MINDS is currently coordinated by the University of Limerick and includes ISCTE-IUL, the University of Oslo and SWPS University of Social Sciences and Humanities as full partners.    I welcome any expressions of interest for Master thesis or PhD supervision on morality, cross-cultural comparisons, youngism and microaggressions (from an enactor and/or victim perspective).
