Clíona Kelly

Postdoctoral Associate in the Child Study Center



Dr. Kelly received her training at Aston University, U.K. in Psychology (BSc), Cognitive Neuroscience (MSc) and Neuroscience and Computer Science (PhD). Her doctoral research investigated social interaction, specifically joint attention, between real and virtual humans.
