I received my Ph.D. at the University of Minnesota's Institute of Child Development. My research interests include brain and behavioral development, visual attention, and quantitative psychology.
I fell in love with research at Brown University, where I did my honors thesis on the different cognitive processes that impact how we make decisions. During my senior year I discovered the world of infant attention, and become obsessed with figuring out how babies learn to make sense of the visually complex world. That led me to a stint at Emory University where I studied how differences in visual attention impact social and cognitive development in infants later diagnosed with autism, and finally to the U of M where I earned my doctorate.

My program of research is multi-disciplinary, and spans the fields of Child Psychology, Neuroscience, and Computational Psychiatry.
During my Ph.D. I've worked on multiple collaborative teams, both leading projects and serving as a statistical consultant. My work has been published in multiple academic journals, and presented at international conferences.
My research projects include:
