Associate Professor, Psychology
Current Research Activities
How do social, emotional, and cultural competencies develop in early childhood? How do we support development in these areas through research-community collaborations? As a developmental psychologist, I take a constructivist and sociocultural approach to study young children's learning and development: Children actively construct knowledge from their interactions with their social and cultural environments. To address the role of social and cultural experience in development, my research program integrates three areas that build on one another: (1) development of young children's reasoning, (2) relationship between culture and development, and (3) developmental assessments and training programs.
