How can we think about things that we can’t see or hear or touch? My research explores how cues from perception, language, and culture work together in the mind during development, allowing young children to acquire abstract concepts that go far beyond what they can directly observe. Much of my recent work focuses on the case study of time.

In September 2018, I will begin a new position as Assistant Professor of Psychology at The University of Texas at Austin. Please contact me if you are interested in joining the Austin Thought Lab!
