About the author:

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:

Professor and Director of the William J. Shaw Center for Children & Families, University of Notre Dame
