Biography

My main research interest lies in the field of developmental psychology, with an emphasis on language and literacy acquisition and psychological well-being in students. I have examined their development through various levels, taking special account of factors including genetic contribution (with twin designs), parenting (with family studies), and underlying mechanisms (with correlational research studying the concurrent and longitudinal links).
