children`s spatial skills, multimodal representations, the impact of play in educational settings
Caroline is from Ridgewood, New Jersey. She received her Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA in 2017, where she focused on learning about children’s spatial reasoning and gesture use. Caroline’s main research interests include how children use questions to learn about the world, how play can be used in educational settings, and how parent-child interactions can be strengthened. She hopes to continue to pursue research in children’s learning during her time at UD. Caroline is a research assistant in Dr. Roberta Golinkoff’s lab and has worked on projects focusing on children’s spatial skills, gesture use, and question-asking.
