I have been Senior Lecturer in Psychology at Portsmouth since 2009. Before that I was lecturer at the University Sapienza of Rome (Italy) where I also did my PhD. I trained in Conversation Analysis and ethnography at UCLA. My PhD investigated autobiographical accounts in psychotherapy, looking at narratives in interaction. I have subsequently done research on family and workplace communication, and am currently interested in communication in mental health and intellectual disabilities.

I am a member of the Centre for Situated Action & Communication.
