Ania Aïte (PhD)

Ania is an Associate Professor in Developmental Psychology at the Institute of Psychology at the Paris Descartes University since 2015. After graduating in Neuropsychology from Paris Descartes University in 2010 she conducted her PhD at the LaPsyDÉ under the supervision of Sylvain Moutier and Mathieu Cassotti in 2013. She then completed a one-year post-doctorate at the Brain and Creativity Institute (University of Southern California, USA) under the supervision of Antonio and Hanna Damasio. Her current research focuses on the development of perspective-taking abilities in children and adolescents. She is particularly interested in the role of inhibitory control as well as the influence of emotions and social context on these perspective abilities.
