My research focuses on the abstract theories that children build and rely upon as they navigate the social world. I explore how children learn to organize the people around them into social categories, and how they make inferences about people on the basis of social category membership. I also study the implications of social categorization for moral evaluation. When I'm not working, I can usually be found baking, traveling, or obsessing over my dog, Dobby.
