Philosophy Statement:

I focus on the development of executive function and self-regulation, particularly during early childhood. I conduct research to determine how perinatal and early caregiving experiences shape children’s developmental pathways for self-regulation. I also conduct research to determine how aspects of self-regulation, including cognitive control, emotion regulation strategies, reflection and metacognition, contribute to learning and academic achievement, particularly in the area of mathematics. I use neuropsychological, neuroimaging, and physiological measures in my work. Students who work with me can expect to gain experience in quantitative research and analysis approaches, neurophysiological data collection, and research with children, families and schools.
