Curriculum vitae: 

After going to High School in France, I move to the UK to complete a BSc in Natural Sciences (majoring in Physics) at Cambridge University. I then moved to McGill in Montreal, Canada, where I began a PhD in Psychology, only to return to the UK to complete a PhD in psychology at Oxford University. My first academic position was at the university of Exeter in the UK and I have now been in the Department of Psychological Sciences at Birkbeck College, University of London since 1998, where I am now the Director of  the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development. Since then, I have been on several editorial boards, including co-Editor in Chief of Developmental Science from 2004-2012. I have successfully attracted over $10million as PI and co-PI in research contracts, including leading several multidisciplinary European–wide research networks exploring early cognitive and perceptual development. I was awarded the Marr Prize from the Cognitive Science Society (USA), the Young Investigator Award from ISIS (USA), The Margaret Donaldson Prize (British Psychological Society), a Royal-Society-Wolfson research merit award, and I have been made a fellow of the APS and the BPS. I have published over 70 refereed journal articles. Key books include: Neuroconstructivism (2007); The Making of Human Concepts (2010) and Educational Neuroscience ( 2013). Finally, over the last 10 years, I have acted as a volunteer maths teacher to inner-city primary schools in London.
