A bit about Birsu Kandemirci

I completed an MSc in Developmental Psychology at Lancaster University, researching schema-driven false memory in children and adults. Following this, I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield, looking at the effects of touchscreen use and peer collaboration on children’s creative storytelling and drawing. Through investigating creative storytelling, I developed an interest in children’s linguistic abilities. This interest has led me to join the LuCiD team.

My Role in LuCiD

I was a Research Associate in the modal and mental state terms  project for phase 1 of LuCiD.
