I am passionate about teaching and learning in theory and practice. My goal in the classroom is to help students acquire knowledge and concepts about child development, apply the principles to problems typical in the field, and transfer and adapt the information to novel contexts. I aim to empower my students to be leaders in the field. Moreover, I am committed to do this with a contagious level of enthusiasm.

Research and Teaching Interests

My program of research stems from my experiences as a 5th grade teacher in a low-socioeconomic urban district. The students I worked with appeared to learn in ways that were fundamentally different than students I had taught from middle- and high-socioeconomic areas. I was motivated to find out why. To gain a thorough understanding of the neurological underpinnings of learning that could be at play, I worked with a lab investigating the electrophysiological patterns of human memory. I then went on to earn a PhD in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology.

Now, I draw on scientific findings from the fields of education, neuroscience, cognitive, and developmental psychology to approach my teaching and research. My current research focuses on the ways socioeconomic status impacts malleable cognitive processes associated with academic achievement.
