Research

Carolien leads her own research lab (www.focusonemotions.nl). Research in this lab is dedicated to the functionality of emotions and its impact on social development and mental health in children of all ages, from babies to adolescents. Current research focuses on the various aspects of emotional intelligence, such as emotion awareness, coping, display rules, empathy, and anger expression. Besides typically developing children and adolescents, the group has a strong interest in the social and emotional development of those with autism, deafness, or specific language impairments. Another line of research in this area is focused on cultural differences. Over the last couple of years, Carolien’s lab also developed a close collaboration with Computer Science (LIACS (Leiden Institute of Advanced Computer Science) and TU Twente, enabling researchers in her lab to apply new techniques for monitoring children’s social behavior, such as the use of Radio Frequency Identification Devices (RFIDs).
