Bio:

I am currently an Assistant Professor in the Human Development and Educational Psychology program. I am an active member of the Science of Learning Research Group and the Center for Brain and Behavior Research.


Research Interests:

I look forward to applications from new students. My primary research interest is in young children's learning from media. My focus is on determining how and when young children struggle to learn from different types of media (e.g., books, videos, apps) and identifying methods for supporting children's learning from media. I am also interested in how children transfer information from the context in which it is learned for use in new contexts. I have expertise in early childhood research, cognitive development, and media psychology as well as strong training in statistical and research methods.
