Research Interest

I am mainly interested in the development of social cognition. More specifically, I investigate how young children navigate the complex social world by tracking others' mental states and group membership. For example, are young children more prone to track the epistemic perspective of a member of their own group or a person they have interacted with? 

I am also conducting research about trust, fairness and moral values with teenagers and adults as well as theory of mind abilities in chimpanzees.
