Nicole Stucke

Graduate Research Assistant

Applied Developmental Psychology: executive function; social cognition; intervention

Nicole is a third-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 social cognitive skills like theory of mind understanding and self-awareness. She is also interested in how these skills can be trained and improved to promote adaptive functioning.
