Graduate Research Assistant

Applied Developmental Psychology: executive function; social cognition; intervention

Nicole is a second-year doctoral student working with Dr. Sabine Doebel in the Developing Minds Lab. She graduated from the University of Minnesota with a bachelor of science in Developmental Psychology and Neuroscience in 2015. She studies how children develop executive function (neurocognitive skills involved in self-control) and how these skills are related to key developmental outcomes, including school readiness and achievement, behavior and emotion regulation, as well as social cognition. She is also interested in how these skills can be trained and improved to promote adaptive functioning.
