At Cambridge I am a member of the baby-LINC lab (http://www.baby-linc.psychol.cam.ac.uk), working with Dr Vicky Leong to investigate the neural correlates of infant attention and learning in naturalistic contexts using dual parent-child EEG and ECG.
I am mainly based at the University of East London, where I lead the BabyDev Lab (https://www.uel.ac.uk/research/developmental-psychology/baby-dev-lab) funded by an European Research Council Starter Grant. There, we research stress and attention during early infancy, particularly in infants from low socio-economic status backgrounds. I am also involved with a number of projects looking at the effectiveness of attention training in infants, using computerised attention training paradigms that I designed. This includes projects in London, Finland, the US and Canada.
