Research Interests

     I am interested in how social group membership (e.g., gender), family, and society-level influences shape children’s developing interests, aspirations, and achievements. I am particularly interested in how these forces promote or detract from children’s interest and participation in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Informal learning contexts like play are of particular personal interest because humans spend so much more of their time outside of formal academic settings. Finally, I am interested in the role of individual differences in personal social group membership salience (e.g., gender salience) as moderators of cognition.
