I study the early development of social cognition and motivation. How do infants and young children understand others' minds, interactions, and relationships? What motivates them to attend to and engage with social partners? How do we develop the abilities to cooperate, communicate, and learn from each other in just the first few years of life?

My research investigates the intersection of socio-emotional development and cognition. Specifically, how does children’s understanding of others’ emotions, and evaluation of social interactions, shape their representations of objects and other agents.
