About

I am a Professor in Social and Organizational Psychology at the Psychology Department, University of Crete. I have held research and teaching positions in the UK (University of Cambridge, Anglia Ruskin University) and in Greece (Hellenic Open University, University of Thessaly). I am currently the Director of the Applied Psychology Laboratory at the University of Crete. Research Interests My research examines the intersection of personality and emotion in social interaction: in dyadic relationships, in -hierarchical- relationships at work and in social interactions across cultural contexts. One line of research examines personality-related emotional capabilites (attachment orientations, emotion regulation strategies) and emotion in face to face social interactions. Another line examines cultural influences in how emotion and related capabilities are expressed in social interaction and in emotion communication. The research adopts a multilevel approach conceptually, operationally, and analytically, interfacing the different levels of analysis: person, dyad/group and culture. The "take home message" of this research is that social context is important for understanding the intrapersonal and interpersonal parameters of emotion and well-being.
