Our research focuses on how children and adolescents make social decisions. We are particularly interested in decisions regarding group norms, group dynamics, intergroup attitudes, and social exclusion. Our research uses a developmental framework, examining how various aspects of social cognition develop and change through childhood and adolescence. In our research, we utilize surveys, interviews, and behavioral tasks.
