“The development of social anxiety is a multidimensional puzzle with experiential, physiological, physical, cognitive and psychosocial pieces.”

Esther van den Bos is a postdoctoral researcher at the unit Developmental and Educational Psychology of the Institute of Psychology at Leiden University.

She obtained both her master’s degree and her PhD in Cognitive Psychology from Leiden University. She wrote her thesis on implicit learning of artificial grammars and went on to study statistical learning of language-like structures as a postdoctoral researcher at Cornell University.

Her current research focuses on the normal development of sensitivity to social evaluation (social anxiety) during adolescence. She is particularly interested in the development of physiological responses to social-evaluative situations and how this may be affected by pubertal, cognitive and psychosocial development.

For a full description of her research programme, see Normal development of sensitivity to social evaluation in adolescence
