Senior Research Fellow
PhD, Duke University, United States; Bachelor of Science, Carnegie Mellon University, United States

Biography

Background I earned by BSc in Cognitive Science at Carnegie Mellon University, and my PhD in Psychology at Duke University with Prof. Amy Needham. From there, I took a postdoctoral position with Prof. Mark Johnson at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development at University of London studying infant brain development. In 2007, I moved to Swinburne University of Technology where my group established Australia's first infant cognitive neuroscience laboratory. Research Interests My main scientific interest can be summarised by the following question: how does the mental world of the infant differ from that of children and adults? My research uses a multi-disciplinary approach which includes: electrophysiological (EEG) methods to measure brain activity related to cognitive processing, infrared eye-tracking system to examine spatial sequence learning, behavioural methods including measuring infant habituation to various stimulus types (actual objects, computer animations, videotaped recordings, etc), and thorough literature reviews to form specific and testable hypotheses. Additionally, I am very interested in examining how technology usage influences learning and cognition in preschool children.
