Researcher biography

My name is Jon Redshaw and I’m a Research Fellow in the School of Psychology at UQ.

I have several lines of research interests. For example, I study: (1) how children think about and prepare for uncertain future events, (2) how children reflect on past events to experience emotions like regret and make moral judgements, (3) how children to use “thinking tools” like maps and calculators to help themselves solve difficult problems, and (4) how children make predictions and experience high or low confidence about those predictions.

My PhD students Cate MacColl, Ally Jones, Lily Dicken, Jess Crimston, and Zoe Ockerby are currently working on a number of related projects in the ECDC and at the Queensland Museum
