Personal profile

Research Interests

Much of my research has focused on the development of different aspects of temporal cognition in young children. I am currently working on aspects of children's future thinking on an ESRC-funded project with Cristina Atance, and on a Leverhulme-funded project on relief with Aidan Feeney, Christoph Hoerl, and Sarah Beck. I have a long-standing interest in interdisciplinary work with philosophers, and I am associated with the Mind and Action Research Centre at the University of Warwick. I am co-director of the AHRC project "Time: Between Metaphysics and Psychology" along with Christoph Hoerl at Warwick. Recently completed projects include an ESRC-funded project with Eugene Caruso examining temporal asymmetries in children's thinking, a Leverhulme-funded project with Marc Buehner, David Lagnado, and Christoph Hoerl, on the effects of children's causal beliefs on their temporal judgments, and a project on mathematics and order processing with Kinga Morsanyi funded by Nuffield.

Teaching

I teach developmental psychology primarily at MSc level.

Particulars

I completed my undergraduate degree and PhD at the Department of Experimental Psychology, University of Cambridge. After a year lecturing at the University of Kent, I moved to the University of Warwick to work as a postdoctoral researcher with Gordon Brown. In 2000, I was appointed as a lecturer at Warwick, before moving to Queen's University Belfast in 2002. I was promoted to Reader and then to Professor of Cognitive Development in 2010.
