Research Interest


My research focuses on autobiographical memory development in cultural and familial context, and how this development changes as a factor of parents' and children's individual differences. I enjoy working with families, and usually collect autobiographical memory narratives or conversations of dyads, triads, and quads from different generations of the same families.

My most recent studies concern memory talk in the family context, intra-familial similarities and cross-generational differences in autobiographical memories, dyadic, triadic, and quadratic parent-child memory conversations, functions of autobiographical memory, life-script and life-stories, earliest childhood memories, emotionally charged memories and emotion regulation, and effects of self-construals and gender on autobiographical memory development.

I am also interested in gender socialization in family context, moral development, and social exclusion judgments.
