Professor of Developmental Psychology
Through my research I would like to gain a better understanding of how infants are shaped by the experiences they have early in life. This research is often experimental and sometimes based on an individual difference approach. I often apply an embodied framework that assumes that infants develop an understanding of their world through active exploration; processes developed to control action are also used to make sense of the physical and social environment. Many of my studies investigate how different processes (both embodied and non-embodied) interact to create a unified percept of the world.
