I am an educational psychologist interested in understanding the development of mathematical skills in both the home and school contexts. My research focuses on development in context using experimental, longitudinal, and observational methodologies. I am particularly interested in three specific lines of research: mathematical skill development, home and school contexts, and the underlying importance of measurement.

Currently, I am an Assistant Professor in Human Development and Family Studies at the University of Alabama.

Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Purdue University, collaborating with Dr. David Purpura. I earned my Ph.D. in Education and Psychology from the University of Michigan under the advisement of Dr. Pamela Davis-Kean and Dr. Frederick Morrison.

Fight for the things that you care about, but do so in a way that will lead others to join you.
