A bit about Vincent Reid

After completing my undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of Auckland in the 1990s, I gained my Ph.D. from the University of London in 2004 under the supervision of Jay Belsky and Mark Johnson. My postdoctoral period was with Tricia Striano at the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology, and then the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences, as well as the University of Leipzig. I became a Lecturer at Durham University in 2006. In 2012 I joined Lancaster University as a Senior Lecturer in Developmental Neuroscience and I was later promoted to Reader and then Professor. I am now the Head of Psychology at the University of Waikato, New Zealand.

My interests are primarily focussed on social development during infancy. As it is impossible to understand social development in isolation, my work has incorporated basic elements of perceptual, motor and cognitive development. I also have a keen interest in improving the methods that developmental psychologists use as they can often be surprisingly lacking in robustness. I have a focus on EEG techniques in the majority of my work, although I have used a number of behavioural techniques and developed interventions. Recently I have also been investigating the utility of experimental paradigms with fetal participants, which is technically challenging but may allow us to produce new ways of understanding early development.

My Role in LuCiD

I led for Work Package 3 in phase 1, working with Eugenio Parise and Louah Sirri. With Eugenio, I also supervised Christian Kliisch as part of this work package, with Anna Theakston complementing our supervisory team with much needed psycholinguistic input.
