Research Interests:

As a cognitive developmental psychologist, I have done research on cognitive development in children.  I am also interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning.  I have published work on faculty development and the impact of a university-level curricular innovation on students’ engagement and critical thinking.  I am currently studying the cognitive and affective impact of service-learning on students.
