She received her BA from Pomona College and her PhD from Boston University. Her main line of research centers on the development of social cognition in infancy. Her areas of interest include the study of gaze following and pointing.

She is also interested in how early social cognition contributes to the understanding of language and theory of mind in children with typical and atypical development.
