Research

Broadly, my primary research interest is understanding the development, mechanisms and functions of attention. More specifically, my projects include studies of: infant attention and motor control, spontaneous eye blinking in infants and adults, problem solving, and formation of world views. A primary research focus is a study of the relationships between attention and spontaneous blinking in face recognition. Additionally, I am the psychology contact for the Global Labs summer research opportunities in Costa Rica.
