IMG_20160804_145412I am a first-year graduate student working with Dr. Amanda Woodward and Dr. Susan Goldin-Meadow. I graduated from the University of Oregon with a B.S. in Psychology where I researched individual differences in preschooler’s preference for and processing of infant-directed action with Dr. Dare Baldwin. Prior to graduate school, I worked as Dr. Roberta Golinkoff’s laboratory manager at the University of Delaware exploring underlying language acquisition mechanisms such as statistical learning. I plan to research how elements of caregiver-child interactions impact learning. I also hope to explore how children’s home environments affect individual differences in learning abilities.
