Currently I am in my second year of the research master of Behavioral Science. My interest are in developmental psychology with a focus on the first years of a child’s life. More specifically I like to focus on parent-child interactions, hormones, such as cortisol and mental health. This year I like to investigate how parent’s mental health, parent-child interactions, early attachment and parents coping style influences the child emotionally and mentally. Therefore, I will also look at cortisol as a mediating role in these association.
