  • Determinants of physiological and psychological stress regulation
  • Resilience in children
  • Personal Values and Valued Living in children and their parents
  • Epidemiology of child and parental mental health: protective and risk factors for the onset of mental disorders 

Research fields

My main research interests are stress regulation capacity and resilience in children and their parents. In particular, I am interested in personal and social resources of children and parents which can buffer physiological and psychological stress responses to stressors and act as protective factors for the onset of mental disorders.
