About the author:
I study how children and adolescents are socialized to perceive justice. From a young age, justice is a strong motivator and how people grapple with it shapes their development.
These questions have led me to investigate parenting practices, school climate, and rule-violating behaviors.
What I want to achieve:
Children and adolescents have a sophisticated view of the world and have insights to contribute to developmental science. I hope to use my research to bring young voices from historically under-represented cultures and socio-economic statuses to the academic literature.
