Being at Surrey was one of the best experiences of my life and when I think about my time in the university a big smile always crosses my face.
Sadly, one of the most influential developmental psychologists of recent times Annette Karmiloff-Smith died just before Christmas.
Born in 1938, Annette obtained her doctorate in Geneva under the supervision of Jean Piaget.
Her work took her to the Institute of Child Health at UCL, and eventually to Birkbeck where she was a Professorial Research Fellow at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development.

The legacy of a student’s educational experience is about so much more than just the quality of teaching, and I feel privileged to have had the opportunity to contribute to learning and teaching at a University where students’ personal and professional development is so highly valued. We have amazing students at Surrey and I have learnt so much from their involvement as partners in my research projects.”
