Applicants are invited to work on both big data and empirical experimental projects exploring how mood and cognition interact to influence children’s learning. Both good cognitive and mental health are important for adaptive functioning, and we know that functioning in one domain effects functioning in the other. The aim of these projects will be to investigate how these interactions change across development, how they differ for different children, and how they impact on learning and educational outcomes.
