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 a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Purdue University in the Human Development and Family Studies department collaborating with Dr. David Purpura on a project examining the unique and combined effects of a picture book intervention on children’s numeracy skills.

Previously, 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. My training in graduate school was focused on the contribution of formal schooling to the development of both mathematics and executive function skills.
