I am a PhD candidate in the Develop Well Research Group at the University of Adelaide, supervised by Dr Nicole Nelson and Dr Mark Kohler. My PhD research focuses on children's ability to understand and use emotional expressivity through facial and bodily cues to interact with others. My research interests are broad, but I am primarily interested in areas related to developmental, social and cognitive psychology, particularly in early childhood through to adolescence.
My research focuses on the ways in which children learn about, understand, and communicate or express emotion through interaction with parents, siblings, and other adults or children. I am particularly interested in further exploring some of the complexities associated with the development and perception of emotions and facial expressivity, which are often not considered by classic theories of emotion.
