Interests and Hobbies

Academic/research interests include development of executive function across the lifespan, the relation between language development and shifts in cognitive capacity, understanding the physiological impact of the psychological stress response, and the emergence of self-awareness in early infancy. Outside of work, I enjoy traveling, hiking, reading, painting, music, and spending time with friends and family.
