Psychology of Intercultural Communication
I am teaching Intercultural Communication within the Master course Psychology of Intercultural Relations at ISCTE-IUL. The course is also open to Erasmus and international students which makes it an ideal intercultural setting to discuss cultural differences and similarities in communication. I also talk about acculturation and more applied issues such as the health setting in which miscommunication due to cultural differences can become extremely stressful. I am very excited about passing on knowledge about culture to my students.
Other teaching experiences
I have been a lecturer for Statistics and Methodology at the University of Kent and taught statistics at both the undergraduate and postgraduate level. I have also given classes for the Master in Social Psychology of Health at ISCTE-IUL and I used to be a tutor in Organizational Psychology at Victoria University of Wellington.
I am happy to discuss a Master or PhD thesis supervision within the following broader topics:
ageism (directed against the young or the old),
poverty or wealth, and inequality.
