Independent social psychologist and linguist specializing in management of European funding, intercultural encounters, European identity, and social communication.

Personal Statement

I’m fascinated by all forms of communication and I try to devote all my different skills to establishing bridges between people, groups, and organisations.

As a social psychologist my mission is creating the conditions for different players to converge interests and efforts towards the collective wellbeing.

Born in Middle East and raised in Europe, I have developed a deep interest in the situation of migrants and asylum seekers, European identity, intercultural encounters, social empowerment, and labelling theory.
Specialising in social communication and project management, I work as an independent contractor with SMEs, research institutes, and non-profit organisations. I have been performing voluntary service by supporting social inclusion of Persian-speaking migrants into the European community since 2010.
