I am interested in children’s social learning in different contexts from late infancy to middle childhood. My research explores ways children learn anything from words to social norms from other people early in life and how that might vary across individual differences (e.g. cognitive and social skills or parenting style ) and group differences (e.g. culture or socioeconomic status). When I’m not in the lab negotiating with preschoolers and wrangling toddlers, you can find me hiking a nearby trail or cooing over strangers’ dogs.
