Elizabeth Olivier is a postdoctoral researcher who joined the Substantive-Methodological Synergy Research Laboratory (Department of Psychology, Concordia University) in September 2019. She received her Ph.D. in psychoeducation at Université de Montréal in June 2017. Her thesis focused on the school engagement and achievement of students with and without psychosocial adjustment difficulties. She then completed a first postdoctoral fellowship at Université Catholique de Louvain, in Belgium, where she studied pedagogical teaching practices associated with student motivation and engagement. Her research interests, grounded in Self-Determination Theory and Expectancy-Value Theory, aim at understanding how teachers can promote the motivation and engagement of all students and students with behavioral, social, or emotional adjustment difficulties, as well as how the mechanisms underlying student engagement and achievement may vary depending on student characteristics.
