I study parenting and its influence on the development of children. My research combines perspectives of child and family studies, developmental psychology, child and adolescent psychiatry, pediatrics, epidemiology and anthropology. I am fascinated by day-to-day parenting practices, and focus on how parenting and sleep affect child development. I am curious to find predictors of parenting strategies and to learn why some children are more sensitive than others to the parenting they receive. My work
aims at supporting parents in everyday parenting choices through evidence-based advice.
