Dr Suzanne Zeedyk

Dr. Suzanne Zeedyk is a research scientist fascinated by babies’ innate capacity to connect.  Suzanne began her academic career at the University of Dundee, in the School of Psychology.  In 2011, she set off an adventure to disseminate the Science of Connection to the public, by establishing an independent enterprise.  Thus 2021 marks a landmark year for her: Ten years on, she is still on that adventure! 

Suzanne’s core aspiration continues to be strengthening awareness of the decisions we take about caring for our children — because those choices are integrally connected to our vision for the kind of society we wish to build.
