My research interests are at the intersection of social-personality and developmental psychology. In a first current line of research, I am studying the development of self-esteem across the lifespan. A second current line of research aims at understanding why, how, and when low self-esteem serves as a risk factor for the development of depression. A third current line of research examines whether self-esteem has a significant impact on important life outcomes.
