Researcher biography

My name is Frankie and I am a PhD Candidate in the School of Psychology at UQ.

My research interests lie broadly in the field of Developmental Psychology, with a particular focus on pre-school children's social and instrumental learning. I am interested in over-imitation, normative understanding and how prior knowledge could affect learning. I am also interested in cross-cultural comparison.

My current project aims to explore what are likely to affect children's decision of whether to learn a novel normative way of completing a task or not.
