My research interests revolve around issues relevant to infants’ perception of information that leads to their emerging communicative skills from birth to toddlerhood. These research questions involve probing aspects of infants’ learning about objects, about people, and about themselves in relation to objects and people. I am particularly interested in how multiple sources of dynamic sensory information drive infants’ attention to and learning about the world in which they live and their ability to communicate about it.
