About

My research interest is in the field of developmental psychology, with a focus on the development of gender and social cognition. Specifically, I am interested in how adults use developmentally relevant language categories toward children based on gender. My research is mainly conducted within The Early Cognitive Development Centre. I am also interested in the role of the arts in mental health and well-being for all.
