Professional biography

Moving from Greece to Britain, I became interested in the social psychological aspects of immigration and citizenship practices, particularly in the dynamics of identity in border-crossing processes and intercultural encounters. Before joining the Open University in 2013, I worked at the London School of Economics where I also completed my PhD.

Research interests

My research is broadly situated in the social psychology of citizenship, particularly focusing on the study of everyday and ‘ordinary’ enactments of citizenship. My current interests lie in the emergent politics of Brexit and the developiment of new political identities in this changing political lanscape. Previous research includes work on identity dynamics identity in border-crossing practices (e.g. processes of naturalisation and European immigration) and intercultural encounters (e.g. in education). 

I am Associate Editor for the European Journal of Social Psychology and a member of the Editorial board of the Journal of Community & Applied Social Psychology.

Teaching interests

I am currently in the presentation teams for DE300 Investigating Psychology 3 and DE200 Investigating Psychology 2. Previously, I co-chaired the production of the new third-level social psychology module DD317 Advancing Social Psychology.
