I am a Developmental Cognitive Scientist whose research program includes basic research in cognitive development and its application in designing effective PreK-12 STEM instruction. My research focuses on the development of Scientific and Mathematical reasoning and Motivation. The goal of my research program is to identify mechanisms underlying children’s reasoning (e.g., strategy acquisition) and motivation (e.g., praise type) using a variety of experimental methods (e.g., eye tracking) and computational modeling.
