Research Interests

I am broadly interested in socio-emotional development, with a current focus on two main topics. First, I am investigating how empathy develops during the first years of life. For this I use various methods (behavioural, eye-tracking, psychophisiology) in an attempt to identify some of the mechanisms that are involved in infant affects sharing, and how this shared affect is related to empathic responses or predicts later developing empathic responses. Second, but not last, I am researching how infants develop an understanding of others' actions for which, again, I use a variety of methods and techniques (behavioral, eye-tracking, ERP).

Career Details

I have done all my university degrees at 'Babes-Bolyai University' in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. During my PhD training, I had the chance to work with Dr. Tricia Striano in the 'Neurocognition and Development Group' at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. As a postdoctoral fellow I worked first with Dr. Petra Hauf at St. Francis Xavier University (Canada), and then with Dr. Chiara Turati at Milano-Bicocca University (Italy). In November 2012, I joined the Department of Psychology at Lancaster University as a lecturer.
