I earned my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017, where I worked with Dr. Andrei Cimpian and Dr. Renée Baillargeon. Starting in June 2017, I will be a Postdoctoral Scholar in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University, working with Dr. Ellen Markman.
Stereotyping & Gender Gaps
Achievement & Motivation
Categorization & Inductive inferences
My research interest is broadly about studying social cognition in infants and children. Specifically, I'm interested in exploring the early precursors, the deep mechanisms and the consequences of the stereotypes about social groups (e.g., gender). I'm also interested in exploring infants' and toddlers' sociomoral reasoning, particularly about their expectations and evaluations of individuals' behaviors within and across social groups.
