Nathalia Gjersoe




I am a developmental psychologist, specifically interested in how the developing brain understands scientific concepts and what natural cognitive hurdles there are in teaching science to children and adults. I did my undergraduate degree at Edinburgh University, worked in research for 3 years and then went to Bristol University to do my PhD in Cognitive and Perceptual Development with Prof Bruce Hood. I am now a lecturer in Developmental Psychology at the Open University, Teaching Associate at Bristol University and consultant for Aardman Animations.

There is heated debate as to how the digital influx is shaping children’s development and experience.
