I am interested in how social contexts relate to children’s cognitive development, such as the domain of math learning. A particular interest is how experiences in the home environment and interactions with parents contribute to children’s early math learning. Consequently, much of my research focuses on what types of experiences and interactions in the home are most conducive to increasing children’s math knowledge, and how this might vary depending on individual characteristics and sociocultural factors. Furthermore, the research I am involved in seeks to examine the best ways to guide parents and caregivers to increase the quantity and quality of math-related talk when engaging with young children. An additional line of research examines the relations between executive function and children’s current math skills as well as their capacity for learning from math activities.
