Learning and learning processes


Doctoral Student in Learning and Educational Technology Research Unit (LET). In my PhD study, I am exploring students’ affective states and socially shared emotion regulation during a collaborative learning process. I am utilizing situation-specific multimodal data (video recordings, situated self-reports and physiological measures) to explore how socially shared emotion regulation emerges in authentic group learning situations. My PhD study is a part of "EmReg - Emotion regulation in secondary school pupils' learning" project.
