I am adjunct professor and psychologist and currently work as post-doctoral reseacher in Turku Institute for Advanced Studies (TIAS) under the division of Psychology and in the FinnBrain Birth Cohort Study. I have currently started as senior researcher in the InterLearn Centre of Excellence, funded by Academy of Finland.
My research focuses on early life environmental effects on child self-regulation development and the neural and other biological mechanisms underlying these associations. I am also interested in the inter-individual differences in sensitivity to stress and environment, and how these differences in plasticity are shaped by the environment across development. I conduct the research in a multi-cohort setting, with an aim is to use methods that increase reproducibility and research credibility.
