I am a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Psychology at Stanford University, working with Dr. Ellen Markman. Starting January 2019, I will join the Department of Human Development at Cornell University as their Evalyn Edwards Milman Assistant Professor.
Before joining Stanford, I obtained my B.S. at Zhejiang University in 2011, and my Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2017, where I worked with Drs. Andrei Cimpian and Renée Baillargeon.
I am interested in studying children's early cognition about social groups. In this vein, I have pursued two major lines of research: One line of work focuses on the cognitive mechanism, the developmental trajectory and the consequences of stereotypes about social groups. The other line of work focuses on infants’ and toddlers’ expectations of people’s obligations within and across social groups.
