My research investigates the cognitive development of young children in the context of locomotion. I study how infants acquire the problem-solving skills they need to navigate the world, particularly when there is an obstacle in their way. I also examine the relationship between sleep and motor learning.

During the 2010-2011 academic year, I spent my sabbatical as a Fulbright Scholar at the University of Haifa, Israel.
