What We Do

The DUCK Lab is co-directed by psychologists Janet Boseovski and Stuart Marcovitch. We conduct studies of social, emotional, and cognitive development in infants, children, and preadolescents at our campus center and in local preschools and schools. Our research helps us learn how children think about the world around them and our findings are relevant to educational policies and programs that are aimed at improving children's lives.
