Upadhyaya, Katja

Dr. Katja Upadyaya is working as a post doc researcher at the Research Center for Group Dynamics (RCGD), University of Michigan, U.S.A. Dr. Upadyaya’s research interests have been parent-child and teacher-student interaction, and particularly how these relationships influence students’ learning and motivation at school. She got her Ph.D in 2007 concerning parents’ causal attributions and children’s school achievement from the University of Jyväskylä, Finland. After that she has been doing research focusing on teachers’ perceptions and self-efficacy beliefs, and their association with children’s academic performance and motivation.

Dr. Upadyaya’s recent research interests have also included the developmental changes in adolescents’ motivation and self-concept, as well as possible antecedents and consequences of school engagement, and how it may be transformed to future work engagement among Finnish adolescents.
