Researcher biography

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

My research interests are in the areas of problem solving, dealing with uncertainty and understanding probability. As adults, when faced with an ambiguous or challenging situation, we will often attempt to consider our options, foresee the potential outcomes and weigh up the probability and desirability of each before choosing a course of action. My research aims to understand when young children begin to engage similar techniques and whether such abilities are shared by some of our primate relatives.
