Elisabetta Crocetti, Ph.D., is a researcher at the Utrecht University, the Netherlands. She received a Master in Psychology from the University of Bologna and a PhD from the University of Macerata (Italy).

She is a member of various scientific associations and she is particularly involved with the Society for the Study of Emerging Adulthood (SSEA), in which she is the co-chair of the 7th Biennial Conference, and the European Association for Research in Adolescence (EARA), in which she is the Representative of the SECnet, the EARA early career researchers’ network.
