Welcome to the Cognition & Development Lab!
Our research investigates how infants and young children think, reason, and learn about the world around them, with a focus on the development of early social-cognitive capacities. Some of our current projects explore children’s thinking about skin color inheritance, racial and ethnic categories, social reasoning in infants and preschoolers, the development of optimism, and the development of and preempting racism in young children.
