Lab members

Gabriella Óturai, PI

Hi! My name is Gabriella, and I am the principal investigator at the Tromsø BabyLab. I have a diploma and a doctoral degree in psychology, and I have been working as a førsteamanuensis at UiT since January 2016 (see my departmental homepage). In my research I would like to find out more about children’s cognitive and social development in the first years of life, especially how they learn from other people and how they form lasting memories. In my free time I like to read, travel, and go hiking.


Solveig Flatebø, research assistant

Hello there! My name is Solveig and I work as a project member on the research project. The day you visit the BabyLab you will meet me, and I’m looking forward to greet you then. As person I’m very happy, a bit nerdy, outgoing and I appreciate to go hiking, cooking and reading books. I have a masters degree in psychology from UiT, and otherwise a varied work experience.


Linda Johansen, master student

Hi! My name is Linda, and I´m a master student at the University of Tromsø. My master thesis will be a part of the imitation project. My interest in developmental psychology led me to choose this project. I also think it is an important and exciting study. As a person, I am a gentle and sociable person who likes to learn new things. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, traveling and cooking.
