Patricia completed her bachelor's degree in psychology (Honours) at McGill University, and subsequently completed both a master's degree and a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at the University of British Columbia. Patricia's research in the K.I.D. Studies Centre investigated when and how preschool- and school-age children use different knowledge cues, such as a person's past accuracy, confidence, or their visual access to information. During her time at UBC, Patricia also collaborated with Dr. Geoff Hall in the Language Development Centre and conducted quantitative research with Dr. Victoria Savalei. Patricia is now a postdoctoral fellow at Concordia University (Montréal, QC) working with Dr. Diane Poulin-Dubois on infants' understanding of other people's minds.
