Dr Sam Wass

I am a developmental cognitive neuroscientist who leads the Baby and Child Development Lab at the University of East London.

I am a previous holder of research fellowships from the British Academy and the Economic and Social Research Council, and a current holder of a €1.5 million research fellowship from the European Research Council. My research examines stress and attention during early life.

I also run training for Early Years practitioners, and act as a media spokesperson with expertise in early childhood.
