Calli Tzani Pepelasi

Lecturer in Investigative Psychology, University of Huddersfield

I graduated from the University of Indianapolis in 2005 with a BA in Psychology. At the same time I was awarded a certificate in family counseling and worked as a counselor and therapist till 2012. In 2014 I decided to go back to academia and studied Investigative Psychology and graduated with a distinction and a fee waiver for a PhD at Huddersfield University. Motivated by the severity of consequences affecting school-bullying victims and the related risk factors for involvement in later life criminality, particularly for school-bullies, I begun my research in the field of bullying and conducted my PhD on school-bullying and cyber-bullying. Since then I have been involved in various projects related to Investigative Psychology and have established communication and collaboration with a number of schools in West Yorkshire with the purpose to further study bullying. Presently I am in the process of developing an anti-bullying model that focuses both on school-bullying and cyber-bullying, and will be tested in the near future in order to be publicly released and available to any school and individual.
