Studying expatriates


Jul 6, 2005
Hello everybody,

I am a psychologist and an expat. I am originally from Argentina and currently living in Oxford, UK. Since leaving my country in 1998 I lived and worked in the former Soviet Union and in the UK. I am interested in the research of cultural adjustment and expatriation. I have done two Master’s degree in the UK researching expatriates and I am currently completing a further PhD. To know more about me and my work, please refer to:

As part of my ongoing research on expatriates, I would like to invite you to take part in a survey. The survey is titled “Well-Being and Quality of Life of Expatriates”. It has been developed with the aim to investigate the impact of expatriation on health, well-being and quality of life. It is part of a series of studies, which I am conducting as part of a PhD in psychology. If you would like to know more, please refer to or e-mail me at: [email protected]. I would be very pleased to answer any questions you may have.

The survey is completely anonymous and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your help would be greatly appreciated.
