My research program is mostly focused on the social psychology of music. I try to contribute to our understanding of how music interacts with our cognitions, emotions, behaviours, motives, and socialization in everyday life. I am also active in research on social (e.g., peers, family) and personality development (e.g., traits, coping) in adolescence and early adulthood. I usually try to situate my theoretical work and empirical findings within an integrative developmental perspective in adolescence and youth. I also contribute to advancing knowledge in the field of developmental psychopathology (e.g., depression, distress, substance use), and of social networks (e.g., peers, family), particularly in adolescence and emerging adulthood. I am also interested in research in cross-cultural psychology. I have collaborated to projects on parenting across countries (Canada and France), and I am now very interested in research on ethnic diversity and multiculturalism in Canadian youth. The social psychology of media is also a relevant area for me, notably because of my recent research on the influence of social and multi-tasking technologies (e.g., portable computers) on young university students.
