Contact Dr Blossom Fernandes

Broadly my research interests lie within developmental psychopathology with a particular focus on executive function and emotion regulation. More specifically, I am 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.
