Independent social psychologist and linguist specializing in management of European funding, intercultural encounters, European identity, and social communication.
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.
M.Sc. in Social Psychology at the University of Florence (Italy) with a thesis research on migrants’ multiple national identities in Europe and intercultural encounters carried out at the University of Malta. 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. Specializing 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. Areas of professional expertise and personal interests include social entrepreneurship, ITC, psychological counselling, non-formal and informal learning methods and creativity.
