Research Summary

Research Areas: My research program addresses the development of  memory and emotion during infancy and early childhood and takes a developmental cognitive neuroscience approach. I am particularly interested in the development of relational memory and the role it might play in representational flexibility. My recent work has looked at age-related changes in episodic memory and future thinking during early childhood and the development of rapid facial mimicry in infancy. 

Current Research Projects:
Project: What Goes With What and Where - The Development of Relational Learning
Project: Catching Emotion From Others - Affective Empathy During Infancy and Early Childhood
Project: Back To The Future - How Do Children Learn To Use The Past To Think About The Future?
