About me

I am an Associate Professor of Psychology at University of Colorado in the United States of America. Along with collaborators based in the United States, Australia, Croatia, Malta, Finland, and Germany, I conduct within-culture and cross-cultural research on human cognition and emotion.

My primary goal in AGYA was to use principles and findings from psychology and neuroscience to improve education in Germany and the Arab world. I was particularly interested in strengthening the way we teach young people science and philosophy. I used my membership in AGYA to contribute to increased exchange between scholars and students from different parts of the world, facilitating cross-border cooperation and cross-cultural collaboration rather than divisions along national and ethnic lines.
