Research interests

My research focuses on the intersection between children’s communicative and socio-cognitive development. I investigate the ways in which young children’s social and cognitive abilities are manifested in interactive contexts, particularly in their peer interactions. The topics that I am interested in involve:

  • Children’s reasoning and joint decision-making with partners (mostly peers)
  • Children’s moral reasoning and moral judgment
  • Children's understanding of social norms, obligations, and commitments
  • Children's understanding of common ground or shared experiences with others
