Interests: Autobiographical memory development, identity and self-understanding, adolescence and emerging adulthood
My research focuses on the role of autobiographical narratives in social cognition and identity development during late adolescence and emerging adulthood with a particular emphasis on familial contexts. By examining autobiographical narratives, I gain insight into how adolescents and emerging adults understand their personal experiences, as well as who they are as both an individual and as a member of a family.
