Research Interests
My research focuses on sensorimotor and cognitive development from infancy to childhood. I am particularly interested in how young infants develop new motor skills, such as reaching and grasping, and how these skills relate to cognitive development. Here, I focus on the development of early executive functions (working memory and inhibitory control). In my behavioural experiment studies, I mostly use motion-tracking techniques. Besides this, I have experience with ERP/EEG, psychophysiological methods, and Virtual Reality. I am passionate about embodied cognitive science, dynamic systems approaches, and active/direct perception perspectives.
