Back to overview


Andrik Becht is a postdoctoral researcher in the SYNC lab (http://erasmus-synclab.nl/) and at the Youth & Family department, Utrecht University. His research is specifically aimed at understanding adolescents' identity development from both a neurobiological and contextual perspective (for instance, examining the role of parents and peers). Andrik also investigates possible consequences of ongoing identity uncertainty in adolescence, to ultimately answer the question why some adolescents thrive whereas others don’t. 


Andrik received his master degrees in the research master Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DaSCA, Cum Laude) and the master Orthopedagogics (Cum Laude) at Utrecht University. In his PhD (Cum Laude), Andrik focused on the development of identity dynamics across adolescence and emerging adulthood, using daily identity assessments (see CV for more information).
