LEADER is a research environment that comprises researchers dedicated to the understanding of various aspects of human functioning and development. Broadly stated, our research aims to understand lifespan development using mixed methods to track changes in behavior, personality, social relationships, attitudes, and neurocognitive processes. We are also interested in the role of contextual conditions on human development and how to prevent negative development and promote adjustment. Our research involves children, adolescents and adults from diverse social backgrounds.

- Family and parenting
- Migration, Integration, Discrimination
- Antisocial development and psychopathy 
- Aging and cognitive functioning 
- Youth, sustainable development, and climate change
