Dr Gemma Taylor

I am interested in children’s exposure to digital media and the impact of digital media use on children’s cognitive development. Digital media is prevalent in our day to day lives and understanding both the positives and negatives of digital media use on children’s cognitive development is important. 

I am currently working on an ESRC funded project titled “Investigating the educational potential of touchscreen apps for children’s early vocabulary acquisition” (May 2018-May 2021). 

Postgraduate Research Supervision Interests

I am willing to supervise topics on areas of child development including learning, memory, language and socio-emotional development and/or children’s digital media.
