I practice, teach and research in the areas where education meets psychology. Specifically I am interested in how emotional processes are associated and effect learning in higher education. I am also interested in teachers' social –emotional competencies, and how do they contribute to teaching. Recently I researched inter-cultural relationship in higher education.
