  • Research Interests
    • My research concerns basic and applied questions in children's cognitive and memory development. I am particularly interested in individual differences in emotional memory, and how they might be elucidated by aspects of the developmental context such as attachment, emotion regulation, and EEG.
    • My work with MA students has also included memory in relation to motivation, self esteem, and source monitoring.
    • For more information on how to get involved, go to the Cognitive Development Laboratory page.
