Research Interests:

My research seeks to understand why we all differ so widely in our abilities to learn, reason, plan and solve problems. I focus on investigating psychosocial and biological pathways that lead to individual differences in cognition, development, and education.

I apply an interdisciplinary approach that brings together knowledge and methodologies from psychology, genetics and the social sciences to investigate causes, correlates, and life-long consequences of individual differences in cognitive development and learning.

I am the director of the Cognition, Development and Education (CoDE) research laboratory, check out our website ( to find out more about who we are and what we do
