Assistant Professor


My general research interests surround child development within the context of the home and care environments. Previous research experience included face-to-face assessment of preschool-age children's executive function and mathematical skills, teacher and parent completed assessments of child behaviors and resiliency, and parent completed assessments of the parent-child relationships.
