Kruger earned her doctorate in developmental psychology from Emory University. Her research interests are in the areas of social cognition and cultural learning. She has written numerous articles and book chapters, several in collaboration with Michael Tomasello, addressing the role of joint attention and imitation for cultural learning, gestural communication, and object usage in both children and chimpanzees.

This focus has implications for the role of relationships, communication, and affect in instructional settings.
