Tatiana Sobolewska has started her career by earning BSc Psychology Honours with First Class, followed by completing MSc Clinical Health Psychology degree with Distinction (partly funded by Academic Excellence Scholarship, Middlesex University ). Tatiana had worked on developmental studies at the Music Cognition and Communication Lab as a Research Assistant in years 2013 – 2018. During that time she has gained expertise in design and execution of eye-tracking, preferential listening and observational methodologies and is currently specialising in the fields of language development, music and face perception in infancy.
At the present time, Tatiana is a Graduate Academic Assistant at Middlesex University where she supports teaching on modules that cover topics of statistics for psychological science, research methods and designs, and psychophysiology. She is also a doctoral candidate in Developmental Cognitive Science under supervision of Dr Fabia Franco at the Music Cognition and Communication Lab. Tatiana’s project is aimed at examining aspects of music as part of an early communication system by looking at commonalities between processing and perception of musical sounds and speech. The project utilises Tobii eye-tracking technology and will be based on gaze-contingency paradigm.
