In my research I try to explain why some children perform better in school than others. One of my focus areas is mathematics.
In my current research I investigate how children's cognitive abilities together with academic emotions explain school performance. Besides that, I also investigate children's spelling ability.
In the past, I also investigated the role of executive functions, such as working memory, in children's mathematics learning.
