About the author:

My initial research focused on language and cognitive development in children and has now expanded to include cognitive neuroscience and lifespan cognition and aging.

What I want to achieve:

I would like to contribute to creating an environment in which all children are supported to achieve their highest potential and help parents and educators understand that language is a central part of that process.
