My research focuses on the development of uniquely human cognitive abilities, including language, symbolic math, and relational reasoning. Specifically, I examine how verbal and nonverbal representations interact to support conceptual development and higher-level cognition. The ultimate goal of this research is to advance our theoretical understanding of the origins of human knowledge and to harness this understanding in order to improve children’s educational outcomes.
