My research interests lie in the development of cognitive capacities both in utero and throughout the first year of life. During an ESRC 1 + 3 funded studentship, I have investigated infant understanding of numeracy and object permanence. In addition, these projects aimed to investigate the use of both Infant social looking and the effects of the social environment when measuring these aspects of cognition. Currently, I am working with Dr Vincent Reid investigating the understanding of light in the late pre-term fetus funded by the ESRC Transformative grant.
