I joined Salford Business School in July 2016. I am form an interdisciplinary background and completed my education internationally with the help of various fully-funded scholarships for prestigious university programmes, encompassing law, psychology and business. My specialism is alternative dispute resolution. I trained in mediation and coaching internationally (USA, UK, Ireland, Hungary) and mediated cases at Metropolitan Court Albuquerque, USA, and Family Child Youth Association, Budapest. I hold a PhD in Law and Psychology from the University of Hull (2015). My thesis explored participants’ experiences of interpersonal conflict, workplace mediation and its dynamics, and the impact of mediation on their relationship.

My development as a lecturer/teacher, researcher and practitioner has taken place in a range of legal jurisdictions, academic disciplines, and professional and social settings. I worked in legal practice, which involved dealing with legal consultancy and dispute resolution primarily in employment, corporate, commercial and civil law. I held teaching positions at University of Hull Faculty of Business, Law and Political Sciences and Peter Pazmany Catholic University Hungary. I conducted research in different positions, e.g. Research Fellow at Julius Rezler Foundation, University of Technology Department of Sociology and Communications, Budapest; Research Assistant at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. I published journal articles, book chapters and conference papers internationally, including in Conflict Resolution Quarterly, the leading international mediation journal.
