Development, Education, Language and Outreach in Psychology (DevELOP) Research Group

We conduct research that covers the pre-natal through to adulthood and aims to answer fundamental questions to impact both theory and practice. Our expertise spans a range of different methodologies including fieldwork in educational settings, using experimental techniques such as eye-tracking, EEG and fNIRS, as well as observational methods, qualitative analyses, questionnaires, interviews and focus groups.

We are also involved in outreach activities that enable children from schools and colleges to gain a deeper understanding of psychological research, engage members of the public with key aspects of Psychology and influence early years policy and third sector approaches to child development.
