Research Overview

My research investigates how parental executive functions are impacted in high-risk contexts, and the downstream consequences this can have on parenting behavior and child outcomes. I am also interested in parental scaffolding (i.e., how parents teach their children new skills), and how this can influence children's independent problem solving skills.
