We study how humans learn about the world from birth onwards. We are working toward a more complete picture of social and cognitive development. Filling in the picture is important because understanding the many paths of development will inform parenting and education programmes for children, as well as public policy.


Why We Need Your Help

Our studies cannot happen without the participation of children and their parents, so we are always looking for families to take part in our studies. If you would be interested in taking part in our studies with your child, please contact us at We value your child's safety and well-being. Cardiff University’s Safeguarding Children and Vulnerable Adults Policy is available here.


Talk to us!

To help us make the most of our research here in Cardiff, we are making our best effort to join the social media conversation. We post updates on our own studies as well as insights about human development and useful links. Please join our conversation using the social media logos opposite.
