We are interested in children’s and adults’ conceptions of people, animals, and objects. Some of our current research interests include:

  • Developmental change in children’s explanations of living and non-living natural phenomena
  • Children’s tool-use behavior and reasoning about human-made objects
  • How children learn social norms and cultural conventions
  • Cross-cultural differences and similarities in religion-relevant explanatory biases
  • Biology education in early elementary school children.
