Childhood and aging are marked by dramatic changes in learning, memory and cognitive control. My research program examines how these processes interact throughout the lifespan and how brain development, experience, and environmental factors shape their developmental trajectories. In particular, I am interested in how the development of cognitive control contributes to learning and memory development and how the fidelity of sensorimotor representations modulates these relations. I am also examining how motivational and environmental factors influence the developmental trajectories of learning, memory and cognitive control.
