Currently, I work with Dr. Eva Pomerantz in the Center for Parent-Child Studies with a focus on children’s early math learning. My research focuses on different forms of parents’ involvement (e.g., parental homework involvement and school involvement) and how such involvement contributes to children’s motivation and academic achievement. I am also collaborating on the children’s engagement coding project in which we are examining children’s behavioral and cognitive engagement while working with their parents on a math activity.
I ultimately hope my research can help parents, caregivers, educators, and practitioners to develop effective practices, so children can achieve their full potential.
