I have fairly broad interests in individual differences in mathematical achievement, working memory, and executive functioning. Much of my recent work has taken a longitudinal approach and has provided me opportunities to delve into complex longitudinal data analysis.
I am currently teaching the Honours Project research methods class. I have also taught various courses in quantitative analyses and child development.
