I am primarily interested in studying how children learn, both in an effort to better understand how the mind works and as a means of improving early education. What mental constraints and mechanisms drive learning? What role do structures in language play? To begin to answer these questions, I am currently focusing on how children learn number words and ultimately develop an understanding of the symbolic number system.
