Kevin & Abigail Grobman on our way to daddy-daughter dance.


I have taught mathematics to underprivileged elementary and middle school students, physics at an all-girls high school, and psychology to high school, undergraduate, and graduate students. I have taught a diverse range of college psychology classes including intro, social, developmental, and cognitive, as well as special topics in education, infancy, and creativity.

My research examines how we creatively solve problems and develop a deeper conceptual understanding, by examining internal cognitive processes that underlie our struggles (e.g., working memory) and external social contexts that influence us (e.g., teachers use of inquiry learning pedagogy, parenting styles). The research methods I use include large-scale survey designs (e.g., science fairs) and experimental designs with in-depth coding of qualitative data (e.g., infant problem solving).
