Happy New Year! We have entered 2021 with five new post-docs after Margaret Laurie, Bérengère Digard, Sinead O’Carroll, Shereen Sharaan and Bethan Dean all completed their vivas remotely during various stages of lockdown in 2020.

Their PhD projects covered a wide-range of topics, including bilingualism in autism, social cognition in preterm children, and socioeconomic influences on infant language development.

Margaret, Bérengère, Sinead, Shereen and Bethan are going on to a range of exciting roles including research at Lego, outreach and engagement at the University's Patrick Wild Centre, and neurodiversity research in the Middle East.

The DART group is part of the Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre, led by Professor Sue Fletcher-Watson, and focuses on neurodevelopment, cognition and education.

Huge congratulations to everyone and warm wishes for your future careers.
