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

My research interests are in the field of developmental psychology, specifically counting in infancy to early childhood. More specifically, I am interested in comparing how monolingual and bilingual children develop the abstract principles of counting. It has been previously indicated that bilingual children may develop counting principles at a faster rate compared to monolingual children. Additionally of potential interest is whether earlier development of counting principles may later contribute to other educational advancements for children.
