I am a researcher in developmental psychology, working as part of Dr Danielle Matthews’ research group. My research focuses on the development of social cognition in infancy and early childhood. I have a particular interest in the very beginnings of joint attention and communication in infancy, but am also interested in social and communicative development throughout infancy and early childhood, with previous experience investigating pre-school children’s mentalising and pragmatics skills. I am also a committed advocate for community engagement and outreach with families, and am interested in exploring ways in which developmental researchers might effectively engage their local communities with their research.
