Chiara CappariniMarie Curie Early Stage Researcher, PhD student
I am broadly interested in perceptual and cognitive development over the first years of life.
I have been involved in research projects investigating infant understanding of numeracy and ordinality, biological motion, and face processing, using eye tracking and fNIRS procedures. During my MSc, I also researched on spatial and mathematical cognition and memory in school age children.
Currently, I am researching on how infants detect eye contact and gaze cues to locations in space as part of the MOTION ITN. The aim of this ITN is to move experimental infancy research from artificial laboratory contexts towards more natural and ecologically valid situations taking advantage of the recent advances in wearable and wireless technologies.
I am also interested in atypical development.
