Associate Professor and Director of the Graduate Program – Department of Psychology, Lehigh University
I am a sociocultural developmental psychologist with a range of research interests that include the role of narrative in development, socialization, and education; the influence of the peer group and peer culture as social contexts for children’s cognitive, socio-emotional, personality, and moral development; the relationship between play and narrative; the foundations of emergent literacy; and the developmental interplay between the construction of reality and the formation of identity, including gender identity.
