My research interests are related to several areas of psychology spanning from personality and developmental psychology to health, work and educational psychology. My doctoral thesis examined work stress and atherosclerosis. Since then I moved to examining e.g. personality traits as predictors of health and well-being, development of personality, acute and chronic stress, gene x environment interactions, intergenerational transmission of factors like parent - child relationship qualities. Currently I am especially interested in compassion and its development.
