    I study cognitive development with a focus on the development of mathematics knowledge and problem solving. My primary goal is to understand how children think and learn about mathematics, both independently and with instructional guidance. My research not only helps identify basic cognitive processes that support the construction of knowledge, but also examines how to use that information to design effective instructional techniques.
