My main research interest lies within the intersection between personality, psychopathology and personality pathology in children and adolescents.
In my PhD, I combined these themes by specifically investigating the link between personality, obsessive-compulsive disorder and obsessive-compulsive personality disorder at a young age, whereas I am currently adopting a developmental and personality perspective to study forensic psychopathology in younger age groups (e.g., conduct disorder, antisocial personality pathology, psychopathy,...).
Other research interests are: assessment, scale development and validation, psychometrics, measurement invariance, and mobile dating app (Tinder) motives and personality (disorders).
