Annette Karmiloff-Smith started as a UN simultaneous interpreter. Bored repeating others’ thoughts, she moved to developmental cognitive neuroscience.
Annette Karmiloff-Smith passed away today. She was a Professorial Research Fellow at the Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development.
Born in 1938, Annette obtained her doctorate in Geneva under the supervision of Jean Piaget. Her work took her to the Institute of Child Health at UCL, and eventually to Birkbeck.
Annette was a friend and a mentor to many, myself included. I hope you can take the time to explore her wonderful contributions to psychology.
