I have been with Brainmass since 2007. I have studied & worked across Asia-Pacific in my interest to get to know the cultures that populate this wonderful Earth. For the last 8 years, I have been based in Europe, living between Germany and The UK, taking up my MA (Soc Sci) with an English University. My current studies and interests encompass the following research areas - ethnography, forensic psychology, sociology, critical social sciences, human geography, social theory, discourse and visual culture. I am aiming to gain a PhD in the Social Sciences with my research focused on Identities. I view my work with Brainmass as a chance to share what I have experienced & learned, to help you gain that 'extra' to get you through tough spots. If I can be of any assistance, I'd be happy to help.
