These are some of the topics I am currently investigating:
- What is unique about the cognitive mechanisms underlying curiosity in infants and preschoolers?
- Can we predict developmental outcomes from early learning abilities?
- How do environmental factors such as the mother's stress levels or gut microbiota impact infants' cognitive functioning?
My main tools to work on these questions are eye-tracking and computational modeling, but I am also interested in EEG and fNIRS.
If you find these questions interesting, don't hesitate to drop me an email or come to my office (SP.B.01.06)
