Editor, Child and Family Blog, and developmental psychology researcher, educator, and consultant

About the author:

My research focuses on cognition and learning in young children, especially how they learn to organize the world into meaningful concepts and categories. I am interested in understanding how children learn to perceive, interact with, categorize, and reason about objects and living things in the world around them.

What I want to achieve:

I am passionate about applying developmental science to promote healthy families and child development. I think it is critical to utilize developmental research findings in real-world settings to identify and communicate best practices in parenting, caregiving, and education. My hope is to help all children and families thrive physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally.
