Justin is a fourth year graduate student in developmental psychology, working with Nora Newcombe and Kathy Hirsh-Pasek. He received his B.S. in Computer Science and Psychology from University of Maryland, Baltimore County; his M.S. in Interactive and Collaborative Technology from University of California, Irvine; and his Master's in Applied Positive Psychology from University of Pennsylvania. He is currently studying early spatial cognition and age-appropriate assessment. He is specifically focusing on assessing mental folding, an important but unrepresented component of spatial thinking in children, and early pre-cursors of science success. The ultimate goal of his research program is to understand the development of and relation between these skills in early childhood.
