Dr Blossom Fernandes, BSc, MSc, PhD, AFHEA, CPsychol.
I am interested in developmental psychopathology with a particular focus on executive function and emotion regulation. I am also interested in the development of emotion regulation in typical and atypical children and adolescents. I have previously used a mixture of experimental tasks and self reports to find out whether the ability to successfully modulate emotional expression is linked to executive functions. I am currently involved in a project investigating the outcome of an intervention programme to improve emotional well-being and social skills.
