Eva Diniz is a researcher at William James Center for Research at Ispa-Instituto Universitário. Her research interests focus on the understanding of personal, relational, and ecological characteristics accounting to the quality of early relationships in families from diverse backgrounds. Her work has examined, through a psychosocial approach, the multiple levels of influence (e.g., coparenting, work-family conflict, father involvement, parental sensitivity, socioeconomic status) shape the quality of parenting and child’s socioemotional development. Currently, she pursues a research project examining how contemporary parents face the challenge of conciliate work and parental demands and how it accounts to father involvement across families from diverse backgrounds and configurations (CEECIND/04111/2017).
