Catherine Tamis-Lemonda's research is focused on infant and toddler learning and development in the areas of language and communication, object play, cognition, motor skills, gender identity, emotion regulation, and social understanding, and the long term implications of early emerging skills for children’s developmental trajectories. She investigates how skills in different domains reciprocally affect one another and snowball over time (that is, the theoretical construct of “developmental cascades”), and examine the role of socio-cultural context on skill development and lagged associations. A core emphasis of this research is on the quality of mothers’ and fathers’ interactions with children –in particular their contingent responsiveness and richness of child-directed language – in relation to children’s developmental trajectories and, conversely, how emerging communicative skills in children influence their everyday learning experiences and interactions with parents. Her studies of these bi-directional social processes are examined in children from diverse economic and ethnic backgrounds using longitudinal analyses, naturalistic observations of infant-parent interactions at home, experimental methods in the laboratory, and surveys and qualitative interviews with parents. This work takes place at NYU Steinhardt's Center for Research on Culture, Development, and Education, where a vibrant community of students and faculty work together to advance a deep and nuanced understanding of how learning and development unfolds in different cultural and ethnic groups in the U.S. as well as internationally.
