My research concerns the developmental processes of self and identity. I study their process ontology and mechanisms of development as situated in time and context. The contexts that I am primarily interested in are family and education. In much of my research I adopt a complex dynamic systems approach, which I apply to theoretical or micro-genetic analytical work. My research is inspired by critical psychology, discursive psychology, and philosophical psychology.
