About the author:

My scientific work focuses on the continuity and change of individual differences that predict youths’ psychological (mal)adjustment, accounting for socialization factors, especially in regard to emotion regulation. My contribution focuses also on examining cross-cultural differences and similarities in emotion and (mal)adjustment.

What I want to achieve:

I wish to enhance existing empirically-based prevention and intervention methods with children and adolescents. I would like to contribute to advance professionals’ ability to more quickly identify, prevent, and ameliorate the antecedents and consequences of youths’ mental health problems, in order to reduce the long-lasting socio-economic consequences of mental illness for individuals, families, and society.
