My interest lies in understanding how human cognition first develops during infancy and early childhood. My background is in Paediatric Neuropsychology and while working with children and teenagers I became more and more interested in the emergence of basic cognitive functions during infancy, enabling all the highly sophisticated processes that we see later on.
I am currently involved in the data collection at the UK site and have taken several trips to the Keneba field station to help with the lab set up and to train the Gambian colleagues to enable them to independently run the study. Within the BRIGHT project I coordinate the EEG study and am involved in developing new tools to assess early memory functioning. Currently I am working towards my PhD at the Great Ormond Street Institute of Child Health at UCL.
