Research Interests
My current focus is on developmental moral psychology. I'm trying to understand the early developing sense of right and wrong, and I want to link this to young children's understanding of normativity more generally. Why (functionally and cognitively) do children believe that others' behaviour sets an example for them? Why do children believe it is wrong and even deserving of punishment when others do not follow norms? These questions link studies of morality, imitation, intentionality, and action-understanding by young children and infants.
