The DPA (Developmental Psychology in Action Lab) is based in the Department of Psychology, School of Social Sciences (SoSS) at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. We research how people, especially children, use new technology. Working with interdisciplinary partners in Computer Science at the Edinburgh Centre for Robotics and  Robotics LabDigital Education and Engineering we develop and evaluate technologies at the cutting edge of human computer interaction. Our theoretical heart is psychological, notably developmental theory of both typical and atypical development, which we use to inform all our work.

I am looking for PhD students, so if you are particularly interested in one of the lab themes, please get in touch with Thusha Rajendran.
