Research Interests

I am interested in the cognitive, metacognitive, social, and emotional processes involved in learning and transfer, hypothetical reasoning, and conceptual change—particularly in science education. Furthermore, I am interested in how psychological research on learning and memory can be applied in educational settings and the associations between mindfulness and learning.
