 Research Interests

  • To what extent to emerging adults already feel like adults?
  • How do emerging adults experience the transition from adolescence to adulthood?
  • Which criteria do emerging adults perceive to be crucial to be considered as adult?
  • How do adolescents experience their relationship with their parents during the transition to adulthood?
  • What role do parents play in experiencing subjective competence on the part of adolescents in dealing with finances?

Answers to questions in the field of coping with transitions are the center of my research interest - especially the transition from adolescence to adulthood. I also consider the influence of context and personality variables to be important in this matter.
