My research examines conceptual development and the development of social cognition. In conceptual development, my work focuses on categorization: How do children categorize different kinds of objects? Does category structure vary by domain? How do children use categories to guide their inferences and behavior? How does information about within-category variability influence individuals’ concepts?
In the development of social cognition, my work examines how children categorize people, as well as the implications of social categories for children’s behavior, social inferences, and moral cognition.

Hi there! I'm the lab manager for the CDSC. I graduated from Swarthmore College with a double major in Psychology and Film & Media Studies, and I have experience in children's media, education, and psychology.

I am currently a PhD student here in the lab. My research focuses on how children reason about various types of social interactions, especially with regard to moral cognition and social categorization. I am also particularly interested in the dynamics of parent-child conversations on these topics. When I'm not in the lab, I can usually be found baking, taking pictures, or exploring New York City.

inferences. I am also interested in how children use traits and social categories to

I just graduated from NYU in May 2012, where I studied Psychology and Child and Adolescent Mental Health.

At CDSC, I spend my time running studies with kids at the Children's Museum of Manhattan as well as kicking back and coding data in the lab. Although I plan on entering into the legal profession rather than psychological research, I hope to use the skills I have learned in the lab and as a major in psychology to pursue a career in Mental Health Law.
