My research focuses on children’s early-learning experiences across sociocultural contexts. Specifically, I am interested in how children’s questions can be used as a mechanism for learning from others.
My research has been presented at numerous national and international conferences, and I have co-authored several book chapters on such topics as the role of peers in children’s learning and on cues children use to learn from others across cultural contexts.
In addition, I have published numerous scholarly articles in journals such as Child Development and the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology.
