Bachelor of Psychological Science (Honours I) - University of Queensland, St Lucia

Professional Activities:

In my PhD research I am examining the effect of external influences on the development of sociability during the early lifespan. Specifically my research aims to determine what role parents and other caregivers play in the development of imitation in neonates, infants and young children.

In addition to my PhD I also work as a Research Assistant at the Early Cognitive Development Centre. Our current project is a longitudinal imitation study entitled: Charting the prevalence, time course and social-cognitive correlates of neonatal imitation (ARC Discovery Project).

My research interests lie broadly in the field of developmental psychology, with a particular focus on infancy and early childhood.

More specifically I am interested in:

  • neonatal imitation
  • social development in infancy
  • maternal experiences during pregnancy
  • postnatal maternal health and well-being
  • the establishment of breastfeeding
  • the early parental bond

My current project aims to understand the role parents and caregivers play in the development of neonatal imitation.
