Haiko BallieuxHaiko Ballieux is a Lecturer in Developmental Psychology at University of Westminster. He finished an MSc in Developmental and Experimental Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, and an MSc in Cognitive Science at the Cognitive Science Centre Amsterdam (Institute for Interdisciplinary Studies).

In 2006, Ballieux moved to London for a Marie Curie PhD Fellowship at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development (CBCD) at Birkbeck, University of London (under supervision of Denis Mareschal), where he used both eye-tracking and behavioural measures to investigate infant object perception, action perception and action production/imitation.

After finishing his PhD in 2010 he worked both as a researcher and a lecturer at the University of East London (UEL). In September 2013 Ballieux moved to the University of Westminster where he works as a Lecturer in Developmental Psychology.

At Birkbeck, Ballieux was a Seminar Group Leader on the Critical Analysis Course, as well as a Demonstrator on the Research Methods Course, both for undergraduate students.

At UEL Ballieux has worked as a Lecturer Developmental Psychology, and became an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

At the University of Westminster he is a module leader of the Level 6 module ‘Advanced Developmental Psychology’. Ballieux is also teaching on the modules ‘Research Methods in Psychology’ (level 4), ‘Foundations of Cognitive Neuroscience’ (level 4), ‘Developmental Psychology’ (level 5), ‘Psychology of Education’ (level 6), ‘Sensory Brain’ (level 6), and ‘Fundamentals of Psychology’ (MSc).
