About me

Welcome! I am a cognitive developmental psychologist investigating STEM learning early in childhood. I specialize in the STEM domains of science and spatial cognition. Within these domains, I examine the contributions of cognitive processes including memory, language, and attention. I investigate how STEM skills develop in early childhood and ways to best promote their development. My work takes a multilevel approach and considers the interacting roles that individual, developmental, and contextual factors play in STEM learning and development.

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin in 2018 and since then have been working as a postdoctoral fellow at Emory University. My postdoc has been funded by grants that I received from both the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and the National Science Foundation.
