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).

Research information:

In general terms, my research focuses on understanding and promoting children's well-being. In particular, my research examines children's behavioural and emotional development as well as the contexts that can influence development as well as the contexts that can influence development, from the pre-natal environment to neighbourhoods.  My research also examines experiences that can have a negative influence on children's optimal development in particulare child maltreatment. Here, I am interested not only in understanding risk and protective factors, but also in using this knowledge to ensure that the most effective interventions are offered to children and families in which maltreatment has occurred.
