Director / PI
Dr. Noa Gueron-Sela
Noa is an assistant professor at BGU in the developmental psychology program at the department of psychology. She completed a Ph.D. in developmental psychology at BGU, and postdoctoral training at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Drawing from developmental psychopathology and biopsychosocial theoretical frameworks, Noa’s research explores the interplay between biological and environmental factors in shaping children’s development over time, with a focus on early childhood (0-3 years). She is particularly interested in the role of the caregiving environment in early development, including aspects such as parental psychopathology, parenting behaviors, and parental self-regulatory abilities. The overarching goal of her research program is to identify pathways to resilience, and the ability to thrive in the face of early life stress and adversity.
