Kasia joined King’s College London in November 2017 after completing a PhD in developmental psychology at the University of Essex. There she investigated the immediate effects of video editing pace on children’s attention and inhibitory control. Kasia is now working with Prof Edmund Sonuga-Barke and the extended team of collaborators on research projects examining the neural underpinnings of self-regulation during crucial developmental periods: toddlerhood and early childhood. She is also co-ordinating research examining behavioural and neural correlates of future-oriented thought in adolescents with and without ADHD. Besides this work, Kasia’s interests include examining the risks and opportunities of growing up in the digital world.
