Andrik Becht is a postdoctoral researcher in the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University. He received his master degrees in the research master Development and Socialisation in Childhood and Adolescence (DaSCA, Cum Laude) and the master Orthopedagogics (Cum Laude) at Utrecht University.
In his PhD (Cum Laude), Andrik focused on the development of identity dynamics across adolescence and emerging adulthood, using daily identity assessments.
His current research is aimed at understanding identity development from both a neurobiological and contextual perspective (for instance, examining the role of parents and peers). Andrik also investigates possible consequences of ongoing identity uncertainty in adolescence, to ultimately answer the question why some adolescents thrive whereas others don’t.
