My research investigates how exploration and attention develop and, in turn, drive learning in perception and cognition. The ideas are inspired by a developmental systems approach, which emphasizes the study of change processes. I use novel methods, including remote and head-mounted eye tracking, computerized video coding, and open data sharing tools to study:
  • Exploration and attention in infancy
  • Coordination and integration across sensory and action systems
  • Control of postural and manual actions in dynamic contexts
  • Multisensory perception of objects and social events
  • Developmental cascades across domains
