The focus of my PhD is the control of goal-directed actions across development in infancy and childhood. I aim to better understand how young children learn and control sequences of action to achieve their goals.
Drawing on the complementarity of experimental methods and computational modelling, I will try to elucidate the processes by which children act upon their environment over the course of development, and to propose new models to simulate the acquisition of sequence of actions.
My project is part of the MOTION (Mobile Technology for Infant Social-Cognitive Neuroscience) Innovative Training Network. It is supported by the European Union under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement no. 765298.
