My name is Hailey Gibbs, and I am a graduate student at the University of Maryland College Park, in the department of Human Development and Quantitative Methodology.

My research interests pertain to children's curiosity and question-asking behaviors, as well as their developing abilities to determine both information and informant reliability.
