“Although I have given 23 keynote addresses in major academic conferences, and over 70 invited lectures and workshops in 21 countries, this upcoming keynote address at the Southeast Asia Psychology Conference (SEAP Conference 2012) is something very unique and personal to me. As the conference is going to take place on an island (Borneo) where I come from, I hope that my academic achievement could be an inspiration to the local students and junior academics,” said Cecilia. 


Cecilia will also be a visiting professor at the Universiti Malaysia Sabah from early September to October; sharing her knowledge and research expertise with faculty and students before returning to Roehampton for Autumn term.

I very much look forward to conducting research this summer in Borneo at a time of tremendous financial and societal changes.”
