Office Location: 
Metcalf 340
Research Focus: 
Infant sensory and learning processes, long-term development, autism, and crib death

As an emeritus faculty member, I also hold an appointment as Research Professor of Psychology.  

Much of my present research capitalizes on a long-term longitudinal sample we first studied when they were newborns, in the period 1959-1966.

With Jack Demick, I currently direct a seminar on coping, development, and resilience, from which we anticipate editing a volume based on the work of 15 or so participants.
