My research focuses on the acquisition of numerical skills in typically and atypically developing individuals. I am particularly interested in understanding how children construct different numerical representations and how these representations change during development.

I am working on a cross-sectional longitudinal study which aims to highlight the contribution of cognitive (e.g., executive function) and non-cognitive (e.g., motivation) processes to mathematical achievement. These behavioural measures will be coupled with neuroimaging data to obtain a comprehensive description of mathematical learning.    

Interested in taking part?

We are looking for children and adolescents to participate in research examining neurocognitive development of numerical skills and mathematical learning. For more information, please visit our study website.
