I am a Forensic Psychologist currently based in Kurdistan, Iraq with the Free Yezidi Foundation; to overlook all MHPSS activities related to the DRL project, funded by the U.S. Department of State.

I provide services as a lecturer in psychology, a clinician, and a researcher. I hold a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology from the Cardiff Metropolitan University (UK) and a Master of Science (MSc) in Forensic Psychology from the Maastricht University, The Netherlands. My supervisors describe me as a “dedicated and hardworking professional with evident ability to adapt and work under pressure”.

I have secured research grants (2019 – 2020 & 2020 – 2021) from Research England, for a Quality Related-Global Challenges Research Fund (QR-GCRF) project regarding personal responses of the military in Sri Lanka, post exposure to crisis situations.

I have research and clinical experiences across diverse and multiple domains such as, maximum-security prison (Sri Lanka), high secure hospital (UK), and military hospital (Sri Lanka), are a few to name. My key research interests and publications include trauma and recovery, sexual abuse, bullying, minority distress and resilience in the LGBTIQA+ community, psychopathy, and serial homicide.
