Academic Interests and Plans
My resMy research focuses on learning and long-term memory in 2- to 24-month-olds. Currently, my lab is using operant training and deferred imitation tasks to examine how new associations are formed, latent learning, how new information is integrated with old, and how memory retrieval protracts retention.
