Elian Fink


I completed my PhD at the University of Sydney, Australia, examining the longitudinal association between children’s emotion regulation, socio-cognitive understanding and peer relationships. Following my PhD, I went on to do post-doctoral research at the Evidence Based Practice Unit at University College London and the Anna Freud Centre, exploring children and young people’s emotional well-being and mental health difficulties in the school context.

Research Interests

My research interests focus on social and emotional development in infancy and early childhood; and include the development of theory of mind and emotion understanding, empathy, emotion regulation, friendship, social competence and bullying.
