Priya Silverstein

PhD student


[Email:] [Twitter @priyasilverst] I am a PhD student at Lancaster University, studying how ostensive-referential cues affect infant attention, memory, and information transmission. I study infants from 6 months to 2 years old, using behavioural and eye-tracking methods. I am particularly interested in disentangling high- and low-level interpretations of infant behaviour. I am committed to open science practices, and part of the department's Prospr group []. Before coming to Lancaster, I completed my undergraduate and master’s degrees at Aston University (studying psychology and then cognitive neuroscience). I also worked as a research assistant at the University of Warwick Communication Development Lab. In my downtime, I love exploring the Lancashire countryside with my wife, reading, and binge-watching trashy TV on Netflix.
