About the author:

I study how key cognitive skills, particularly learning and memory, develop in interaction with internal states like sleep and stress, and in interaction with a child’s social context.

What I want to achieve:

Experiences made during the first years of life are an important foundation of long-term adjustment and well-being. Ultimately, my research seeks to identify factors that help or hinder the developing mind to thrive.
