My research program addresses the development of memory and emotion during infancy and early childhood and takes a developmental cognitive neuroscience approach. I am particularly interested in the development of relational memory and the role it might play in representational flexibility. My recent work has looked at age-related changes in episodic memory and future thinking during early childhood and the development of rapid facial mimicry in infancy.
