My research interests have focused on the links between language development and social cognition.  While some of my work has assessed the abilities of typically-developing infants, other studies have investigated how special populations can illuminate our understanding of language development in general.  My vitae provides a comprehensive listing of my publications; selected articles, talks, and posters are also provided in pdf format below.
