How are culturally valued ways of being and relating reflected in different self-construals across individualistic and collectivistic cultural contexts? What happens to the self-construal of acculturating persons from a collectivistic cultural background who either migrate to, or who are born into, individualistic mainstream cultures? Self-construals – how people define themselves in relation to others – differ between ...
Theoretical anchors for person-environment fit: a perspective from construal level theory and self-determination theory. KU Leuven
Person-environment fit (PE fit) scholars have supported the PE fit paradigm with a solid empirical foundation. Theoretically, however, there still is a lot of work to be done. What we know is that positive outcomes occur when supplies from the environment meet people’s needs, when people’s abilities meet demands from the environment, and when people feel similar to their social environment. What we do not know, however, is whether these ...
The role of social contact and socioeconomic modalities in the acculturation of the psyche KU Leuven
Psychological acculturation might be a concept worth investigating as regards to understanding the role of ethnocultural differences in pupils’ backgrounds with respect to their levels of well-being and academic performance. This can especially prove worthwhile in analysing how the processes entailed by ethnic capital accumulation affect, and are in turn affected by, the minority group’s overall cultural fit. To this end, we might consider ...

State of the art
Natively, cells reside in a complex microenvironment, called the extracellular matrix (ECM), where they receive numerous signals (chemical, mechanical, biological) that allow them to maintain proper function; however, cells can be damaged and these interactions disrupted as a result of injury or disease. To address this problem, tissue engineering is developing as an emerging field with the ambitious aim to ...

Virtual Private Ad Hoc Networks: development and integration of autonomous ans self-*(self-configuring, self-learning, self-adapting) techniques and extentions towards sensor networks Ghent University
This postdoctoral research project will build further on the virtual private ad hoc network (VPAN) concept, developmend during the PhD. The VPAN concept will be extended with autonomous ans self-configuring, self-learning and self-adapting (self-*) techniques to establich, manage and to maintain VPAN's. This project will further integrate sesor networks in te VPAN concept.
