I am interested in how children and adolescents develop, in transaction with their surrounding family and peer contexts. Also, I am interested to learn about how we can enrich these parenting and peer contexts, by implementing and testing evidence-based prevention trials to stimulate prosocial and healthy child and adolescent behaviour.
