Welcome to my website
I received a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology with a minor in Statistics from Boston College, where I am currently a Post Doctoral Fellow.
My research program focuses on emotion regulation strategies in children, examining the relative advantages of venting vs. distraction.
In a secondary research area, I study the cognitive and perceptual processes underlying graphic representation skills in autistic, non-autistic, and gifted children in order to understand the development of superior perceptual abilities in relation to basic cognition.
I work with Ellen Winner in the Arts and Mind Lab.
