Research interests
I am a developmental psychologist with a special interest in development and well-being in contexts of adversity. Most of my current research concerns the well-being of child and adolescent refugees and migrants. I also conduct research to support the well-being of adults with a terminal illness, and on individual and community recovery from disaster.
