Pretend Play, Imagination, Video Games, Creativity, Psychology of the Arts

I am a first year PhD student in the Social Skills, Imagination, and Theater Lab. Previously I got my bachelor's at Washington & Jefferson College with majors in Psychology and Studio Art, and an Art History minor. I also completed a summer internship at the Cognition, Affect, and Temperament Lab at Penn State University. I'm very interested in looking at the various developmental outcomes that are impacted by pretend play and comparing those to outcomes of playing video games.
