Delighted that my abstract has been accepted for the Budapest CEU Conference on Cognitive Development in January 2018, where I will be giving a talk on some of the work I've been doing in Cardiff investigating how causality influences children's perception of temporal order.
I have spent the past few weeks working with two fantastic Nuffield Research Placement students. We have been running studies with children at Techniquest in Cardiff Bay to investigate how causal knowledge influences their experience of time. Big thanks to everyone who has taken the time to participate in our research, and to all at Techniquest for being so accommodating.
U of T News is featuring a nice story about the critical role that undergraduate research assistants play in our research at the Canine Cognition Lab.
Our recent research on capuchin monkeys' intuitive understanding of probability has been featured in U of T News and on the CBC website!
I'm excited to say that In March 2017 I will be starting a new Research Associate position at Cardiff University, where I will be working with Marc Buehner, Teresa McCormack, David Lagnado and Christoph Hoerl on a interdisciplinary Leverhulme-funded project investigating time and causality in cognitive development. I'm looking forward to the new challenge, but first, lots of wrapping-up of projects to do here in Toronto -- it's going to be a hectic couple of months!
I enjoyed visiting the University of Waterloo to give a talk at the Department of Psychology's developmental seminar series. I talked about our comparative causal imitation work (which of course involved showing lots of cute capuchin and dog videos!) Got some really interesting questions and feedback. Thanks to Steph Denison for the invitation!
Our new paper (with Steph Denison, Emily Messer and Daphna Buchsbaum) on capuchin monkeys' probabilistic inference abilities has been accepted for publication in Animal Cognition (see 'Publications' tab). Hooray!
The Canine Cognition Lab at U of T now has a Facebook page! Check it out for updates on our research and lots of cute pics of our doggy participants :)
