Dr Ira Konstantinou
Professor of Psychology
I have completed my BA in Psychology at the American College of Greece in Athens. I completed my PhD work on memory awareness at Sussex University in 2005 and have been working at Richmond, the American International University in London since 2003. My research interests are in the area of memory awareness and I have recently started work on bringing 2 lines of research together, that of memory awareness and that of factors contributing to own-race bias. I am also conducting pedagogical research with a focus on critical thinking in undergraduate students. In terms of teaching, I have designed and run successfully several new courses at Richmond University.
