    Research focus

    My project focusses on implicit processes in math anxiety in adolescents. Math anxiety is a crucial factor in math achievement and future careers. The project aims to investigate the concept and underlying mechanisms of the causal and maintaining factors of math anxiety. We will investigate whether cognitive biases play a role and the malleability of cognitive biases. We will use computerized training programmes with the ultimate aim to alleviate math anxiety and underperformance.
