Research Interests

As a developmental psychologist, I am interested in understanding how children learn language and literacy from events that occur naturally in their lives. One such activity is when parents (or other adults) read books to children, or when children read books themselves. I am also interested in understanding the basic mechanisms that underlie the acquisition of reading and writing in English and in French.
