Our research mainly deals with two subjects: self-regulation and reminiscence. Both subjects are examined from the perspective of lifespan and from a basic and applied point of view. Some of our projects are situated at the intersection between developmental psychology and clinical psychology, for example the role of self-regulation for cognitive and affective health, or interventions to use reminiscence in order to enhance well-being.

The following compilation gives you an overview of current, previous and future projects.
