At Baruch, she is Principal Investigator of the Dynamic Learning Lab, whose research goals are to understand the complex manner in which attention, learning, and memory interact. Currently, there is a strong neuroeducation focus to this work, in that her research integrates basic social, affective and cognitive neuroscience research to help understand how students can bridge gaps in knowledge and overcome academic challenges.
