About the author:

I study the development of infants’ problem-solving skills in the context of locomotion by using infants’ motor behaviors to gain insight into underlying cognitive processes. I also study the impact of sleep on learning in infancy and the relation between the onset of new motor skills and quality of infants’ sleep.

Awards & accomplishments:

I was an American Association of University Women Postdoctoral Research Fellow and a Fulbright Research Scholar. My research has been funded by the National Science Foundation through the Division of Behavioral and Cognitive Sciences and I-Corps programs.
