She has done research on the development of infant vision in the area of developmental behavioral neuroscience, with a focus on assessment of early visual disorders and studies of the oculomotor system. She served for over a dozen years as Dean for Research and Graduate Studies for Brooklyn College. Her current research interests are on how people learn, particularly in higher education; the effectiveness of different types of STEM pedagogy; and the psychological issues confronted by under-represented students in academic settings.

Why I chose to join IRACDA NY-CAPS

I have had a long-time and very positive interaction with SBU on diversity issues and with diverse students from Brooklyn College. I welcome to chance to work directly on the professional development of SBU post-doctoral fellows who are interested in careers teaching diverse students.
