Welcome to the Learning and Development Research group webpage!

At the Learning and Development Research group we want to better understand how children's experiences at home and school support their development. Our research is focused on how children can grow their self-regulation skills and motivation through their relationships with parents, interactions with teachers, and play with peers.

We are based in the University of Nebraska-Lincoln's Department of Psychology. Our lab is located in the basement of Burnett Hall.

Dr. Finch plans to accept a graduate student to start in Fall of 2020. If you are interested in applying, please email: jenna.finch@unl.edu.
