I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Amsterdam. From 2016-2018, I was Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow at the University of Amsterdam and Stanford University.

My research focuses on the socialization of the self—how social processes shape children’s self-views, and how these processes can be altered to help children flourish.
