In 2009 he obtained his doctoral degree in cognitive neuroscience from Birkbeck, University of London (United Kingdom), having worked on subcortical mechanisms of face processing with Mark H. Johnson and Gergely Csibra. His post-doctoral work at the University of East London (UK) demonstrated that poverty and early adversity affect functional brain development already in infancy. At UEL he pioneered the use of mobile eye-tracking for early screening and intervention for at-risk infants (TALBY and iSTAARS studies).

In his research he combines experimental cognitive neuroscience methodology (eye-tracking, EEG, NIRS), observational analyses of infant social interactions and longitudinal developmental designs. His current work is focused on studying early risk factors for neurocognitive and language development, especially in audio-visual speech perception and the role of infant-parent interactions for attention development. He has published over 30 articles and chapters on brain and cognitive development. Since 2013 his lab is a member of the Eurosibs Consortium, the largest European multi-site longitudinal study tracking the development of infants with an older sibling with autism.
