My research interests lie mainly in Ancient Philosophy, Ethics, Psychology (especially the Emotions) and issues in Influence and Persuasion (especially in Leadership). I am also interested in how insights derived from research can have an impact on people's actual practice and behaviour, especially in organisational life and in the way leadership and influence are exerted within organisations large and small.

I am always interested in comments on papers, published or draft, and in inquiries about postgraduate supervision in any of these areas, as well as in inquiries about the implementation of these ideas in (and their implications for) professional and organisational life.
