Research Interests

My interests are in the cognitive processes of memory, attention, language, and learning. Much of my research focuses on children with developmental disorders in these areas of cognition, and investigates both the nature of the underlying cognitive deficits, and how these deficits can be ameliorated with either cognitive or educational interventions.
