About

Eva is an Assistant Professor with the Human Early Learning Partnership in SPPH.

She completed graduate studies in psychology at the University of Heidelberg, earned a PhD in educational psychology from UBC, and conducted postdoctoral research at UIC/CASEL in Chicago.

Her research investigates factors linked to positive child development and strategies for promoting mental health and wellbeing in the school context in particular. Her main focus is on social and emotional learning in schools, risk and resilience, and positive youth development. Eva is interested in the role of peer relationships, relationships with adults (e.g., family members, teachers, mentors), and school-level factors (e.g., classroom climate) in achieving positive, healthy, and successful child outcomes.

She conducts quantitative research with population-based data, intervention evaluations, and large-scale cross sectional and longitudinal studies. Eva takes a whole-child approach, understanding child development within the ecological contexts in which children grow (i.e., home, school, neighbourhood, society).
