Research Information:

I am interested in children's cognitive development. More specifically, I am researching the development of future thinking and planning skills, and children's understanding of their own and others' minds ("theory of mind") - particularly as this last skill applies to explaining and making sense of their own and others' actions as a function of mental states (e.g., beliefs, desires, and intentions).
