Short autobiography:

My experience is from the field of working with young people, employed and unemployed people. I have worked in several national and international projects mostly focused on preparation of training materials, guidelines and education training on various social and educational topics.

Reason for joining: To create/improve a network that can utilise the same or partly the same protocol and questionnaires. This will lead to the facilitation of a comprehensive approach to appearance research and the development of training models for educational professionals and advisors. Another important focus is to create strong partnerships for funding/grant applications.
Current research interest in relation to the COST Action: Appearance aspect in relation to young people and their social and personal life in educational settings: a) Appearance study analysis and research (questionnaires and discussions in the schools and universities in appearance matters aspects). b) How appearance relates to education, social and personal life, employment and overall quality of life. c) Elaboration of training manual and schedules for teachers and lectors.
