Sophie Fielmann

PhD Researcher at Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge


PhD Student, Department of Psychology

Sophie is a PhD student under the supervision of Professor Sarah-Jayne Blakemore, interested in cross-cultural cognitive development during adolescence. Her research focuses on how social cognitive abilities such as perspective-taking, susceptibility to peer influence, and emotion recognition develop in adolescents across cultures, particularly those in non-Western countries. In taking up this inclusive approach, her aim is to further our understanding of adolescence from a global perspective. Before joining Prof Blakemore’s group, Sophie completed a BSc in Psychology (Medical School Hamburg, Germany), an MPhil in Management (Cambridge Judge Business School), and an MSc in Cognitive Neurosciences (UCL).
