Elisabetta Crocetti (co-chair), Utrecht University


Elisabetta Crocetti, Ph.D., is a researcher at the Utrecht University, the Netherlands. She received a Master in Psychology from the University of Bologna and a PhD from the University of Macerata (Italy). Her primary scholarly interest concerns the processes of identity formation in adolescence and emerging adulthood. In particular, she is interested in examining how identity is formed and revised over time and which individual, relational, and cultural factors influence this dynamic. She is also strongly interested in methodological and statistical issues related to social research, such as cross-cultural validation of measurement instruments, structural equation modeling, and systematic reviews. She has given several courses and lectures on meta-analysis.

She is a member of various scientific associations (e.g., American Psychological Association, APA; Association for Psychological Science, APS; Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood, SSEA) and she is particularly involved with the SSEA and the European Association for Research in Adolescence (EARA), in which she is the Representative of the SECnet, the EARA early career researchers’ network.
