Research Interests

Individual and developmental relations between executive function and early learning for young children, aged 3 to 8 years. This research includes analyses of factors that contribute to executive function, specifically, working memory, inhibitory control and a) writing difficulties of young children and b) literacy development of trilingual, immigrant children in French Immersion programs.

Recent projects also involve neuroimaging of cognitive processes that underlie reading for children with developmental dyslexia.
