I am currently a Visiting Assistant Professor at Murray State University in Murray, Kentucky. I will be an assistant professor in the Department of Psychology starting this fall. My research focuses on how children learn from others. My graduate coursework was in developmental psychology. I am interested in how children choose their sources of information in different domains. For instance, when learning different languages, you may need to be aware of who is more proficient in each of the languages you are acquiring. We may also prefer to learn about some things (labels) from some people but about other things (tools) from different people, depending on their area of expertise. More information about my research projects is available in the links to the right.
