Associate Professor

Psychology and Human Development

I study how adults and children learn new information, both true and false, and how to correct errors in people’s knowledge. My research spans multiple disciplines including cognitive, developmental, educational, and social psychology and informs basic theories about psychological processes, while also having clear applications for practitioners, such as journalists and teachers.
