Introduction
My research investigates the developmental and cognitive mechanisms involved in analogical reasoning. Specifically, I am interested in how development in the conceptual and linguistic systems allows children to analogically reason with increasingly sophisticated concepts as they develop. I am also interested in how knowledge of these mechanisms can inform educational practice when understanding relationships is key to understanding the concepts being taught.
