Current job title:
Senior Research Associate
Ivo Pilar Institute of Social Sciences
I am a psychologist, senior research associate at the Ivo Pilar institute of Social Sciences, Zagreb, Croatia and assistant professor of Multivariate statistics, Research methodology and Management of human resources and at department of Psychology, University of Zagreb. My primary research interests include work and vocational psychology, in particular career counselling, psychology of education, research methodology and statistics.
Reason for joining:
I found that the problems and psychosocial consequences of appearance dissatisfaction are very interesting topic. In the field of my expertise, which is primarily related to career development and educational achievement, the problems related to appearance dissatisfaction are largely unaddressed.
Current research interest in relation to the COST Action:
I have a lot of experience in career counselling of people with disabilities, and on the other hand I was engaged on two projects related to vocational education in Croatia. So, my interest is in research of career related traits and competences as well as educational paths (vocational training) of people with wide-ranging appearance problems.
