A Bit About Me

I am a UKRI Future Leaders Fellow and Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) at Cardiff University. The aim of my fellowship is to adopt a process-centred ecological and interactionist approach to understanding infant adaptations to diverse environments; specifically by measuring the complexity of each infant's environment and combining it with multilevel naturalistic and experimental data and computational modelling.
