UEL Baby Dev Lab

Katie Daubney

Katie Daubney

Katie is currently undertaking PhD research into how stress affects auditory attention mechanisms in the first years of life as part of a doctoral training partnership between UEL and Birkbeck, University of London.

Previous research collaborations in the UEL BabyDevLab include looking at audiovisual speech perception and learning in pre-schoolers, as well as investigating the relationship between physiological arousal, behavioural reactivity and neural responses in cohorts of infants and school-aged children.

Initially graduating with a joint honours degree in French and English literature from Cardiff University, Katie embarked on a psychology MSc at UEL after working as an actor, teacher and journalist in France and the UK.
She now has two master’s degrees – the first being a psychology conversion, and the second being in clinical and community psychology – from the University of East London.
