Personal profile

Research interests

I'm interested in the life narratives of youth and the way these influence their identity & worldview construction at adolescence. Related to this, I'm looking at the role of formal education especially in the development of meta-cognitive skills and self-reflection that are needed to foster young people's resilience against harmful developments, such as radicalisation.
