Michelle Heron received her PhD on infants’ knowledge of the human body shape from UQ in 2005. She has lectured in lifespan development, and has worked in Australia and overseas as a Research Fellow in many disciplines, including psychology, population health, and medicine. Michelle is currently a Research Fellow at CONROD – the Centre of National Research on Disability and Rehabilitation Medicine. Most of her work is with typically developing infants in the areas of social development and cognition, but in recent years Michelle has expanded her research interests to examine the impact of parent stress from medical trauma on the developing infant-parent relationship. In this lunchtime session, Michelle will talk about her experiences in the world of developmental psychology research.
