Keywords

  • Cognitive Development
  • Social Cognition
  • Face Processing
  • Culture
  • Empathy 

Research fields

I am interested in the development of social cognition. For my thesis I’m using eye tracking and behavioural methods to investigate emotional expression recognition during development and brain imaging methods to investigate neural mechanisms involved in empathic understanding.
