My research aims to use discoveries from cognitive science and neuroscience to help children thrive in school and in life. Specifically, I am interested in understanding what environmental factors support both children’s approach to learning (what they think they’re good at, where to put their efforts) and their capacity to learn (their neural structure and function, their memory and reasoning abilities).
