Research areas


The main focus of my research is parent-child reminiscing, and the question of how the way parents reminisce with their children affects the development of children’s autobiographical memory.

More specifically, I am interested in how the gender of the parent and the level of involvement of parents respectively affects parental reminiscing style and children’s autobiographical memory.

Furthermore, an essential part of my research focuses on the emotion talk and on the emotional attunement between the parent and the child in the context of reminiscing.

In general, I am interested in how parents’ way of interacting and communicating affects the developmental outcomes of their children.
