Lana Karasik (Assistant Professor) received her Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from New York University. Her research examines relations between infants’ growing perceptual-motor skills and social-cognitive abilities over the first two years of life in social and cultural contexts. She has conducted longitudinal and cross-sectional, observational and experimental, and within- and cross-cultural studies of infants and mothers examining the interdependent relations among infants’ emerging skills and the social environment. Before joining CSI, she was a postdoctoral fellow at the National Institute of Child Health and Development (NICHD) and at New York University.
