PhD candidate in the Social Representations, Culture and Communication Joint PhD programme at University of Pécs, in affiliation with University of Rome.
My academic interests started with a fascination for the psychoanalytical thought, and for a long time, I wanted to pursue a career that was emphasising on the inner world of an individual. This, however, changed in the last few years, with my focus shifting to more societal pathologies as I stepped outwards from own "narcissism" and perceived the world more holistically. Understanding that even my own representation of Self is constructed through the shared meanings I have manifested and created by and through my interactions with the world around me.
In the duration of my candidature, I hope to investigate topics related to Gender Politics, the influence of Culture and Religion, Power Structures within minority and majority groups, Queer Identity and the influence of Social Media on representations. The main framework of my studies is inspired by the work of Serge Moscovici through his Social Representation Theory.
