Areas of interest: Infant Cognition and Development


My research focuses on the earliest evidence of our cognitive capacities in infancy and describes what changes over development. Through this process we gain information critical to understanding cognition in general. Some current lines of research include: 1) investigating the origin and development of analogical processing; 2) the intersection of language and thought in infancy; 3) physical reasoning about number, space, objects, and substances.
