Biography


Miha Constantinescu is a Teaching By-Fellow and Director of Studies for PBS at Churchill College. She is also an Affiliated Lecturer in the Department of Psychology.

Her research focuses on two areas of interest: cognitive development in early infancy and gender development. Currently, she is trying to understand why certain cognitive traits show sex differences early in life which then tend to remain stable despite changes in social attitudes. In her PhD and in recent published work, Miha examined some of the underlying causes of sex differences in mental rotation, focusing on hormonal and parental contributions to infants' mental rotation abilities.
