& Development Lab
We study how infants, toddlers, and young children learn about the world around them
INPUT AND LANGUAGE DEVELOPMENT
Infants and toddlers live in a sea of data. What is the nature of this data and how does it shape language learning?
MECHANISMS OF WORD LEARNING
Young children learn words at a dizzying pace. How do they do this and what does this tell us about the principles of early learning?
DYNAMICS OF EARLY SOCIAL INTERACTIONS
So much of early learning happens through interactions with others. How do the dynamics of these interactions shape early learning, and how does learning in turn shape those dynamics?
Interested in gaining hands-on research experience in a developmental science laboratory? We periodically have openings for UConn undergraduates interested in early cognitive, language and social development. Learn more about the research assistantship.
