I study the socio-emotional development from infancy on. I look at how the family environment such as parenting and family dynamic contribute to children’s attachment security, emotion regulation, and well-being.
What I want to achieve:
I would like children to grow up feeling safe, free to explore, and develop into compassionate and healthy adults.
My previous positions:
