Research Interests – My main research interests focus on better understanding the neural correlates of processes involved in pretend play (i.e. creativity, imagination) and how they may overlap with important areas of social and emotional development. Ultimately, I would like to examine how this knowledge can inform intervention in both typical populations and in children with differing developmental disorders.

Favorite Parts of the Program – The faculty and students are all very supportive and approachable, which really leads to a cooperative atmosphere.
