Research

RESEARCH INTERESTS

- Development and plasticity of face processing biases (race bias, age bias) across the lifespan 

- Social attributions based on facial information across development

- Interactions between biological and cultural factors in driving spatial biases across development 

- Magnitude representation in infants

- Serial order processing in infancy

- Implicit learning in infancy (rule learning)

 

RESEARCH METHODS
