Research Interests
My current research interests concern whether individual differences in attachment can be traced in infants’ socio-cognitive abilities already during their first year of life, that is, before attachment is first measured. I am also interested in the influence of pre- and postnatal parental psychological health, and infant temperament in interaction with the caregiving environment, on future attachment status. Previously I was involved in a research project examining middle childhood attachment in children of mothers with an intellectual disability. Together with colleagues I have also investigated in a longitudinal project the contribution of attachment in middle childhood and young adulthood to personality and social functioning.
