Short presentation

Personal homepage at Uppsala Child & Baby Lab

Personal homepage

I am a developmental psychologist and movement scientist. My research focuses on sensorimotor and cognitive development from infancy to middle childhood. I am particularly interested in how infants develop new motor skills, such as reaching, and how these skills relate to cognitive development. I am passionate about embodied cognitive science, dynamic systems approaches, and active/direct perception perspectives.
