Research Interests
My research interests center around the development of children’s thinking about other people. I am particularly interested in naïve psychology and naive sociology, everyday systems of thinking about people as psychological beings and members of social contexts, and how these two ways of understanding others unfold and interact across development. My research also explores the real-world social implications of understanding of internal states, such how the ability to reason about others’ mental states relates to prosocial behavior and social competence.

Professional Interests
In addition to my academic work, I am interested in applying the systematic approach of research to practical endeavors. Specifically, I am interested in collecting and utilizing data to inform evaluations of programs and institutions.
