Major Research Interests: I am interested in the development of attention regulation and in applying this knowledge to educational domains. Currently I am completing a project on how visual embellishments affect category learning for preschool-aged children; I also am working collaboratively to refine a task that measures sustained selective attention in young children. I previously studied how distributions of fraction arithmetic practice problems affect the accuracy and strategy selection of middle grades students on such problems. Prior to entering graduate school, I was an educator in traditional and Montessori settings.
