I am currently a doctoral candidate at the University of Hawai`i at Mānoa in Developmental Psychology (I defended my dissertation in Dec 2016 and will graduate in May 2017). My work focuses on how young children learn in different sociocultural contexts. I am especially interested in how children learn about social categories (e.g., race and gender) and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in the context of parent-child interactions and children's media.

 

Here I am in 2014 on the Turkish island of Buyukada, after a conference presentation in Reims, France.
