Graduate Students


Raechel Drew, PhD Student

I'm most interested in understanding how prosocial and moral behaviours develop across infancy and early childhood. In particular, how do individual differences in cognitive development, temperament, and early experiences shape our interactions with others and what we think about the actions of others? How do socio-moral judgements exhibited in the first months of life relate to other aspects of social and moral development?

Enda Tan, PhD Student

Enda is interested in the evolutionary and ontogenetic origin of moral evaluation, and is currently investigating the cognitive and neural mechanisms underlying children's moral functioning.

Francis Yuen, MA Student

I'm interested in how infants and children develop inter-group biases in social and moral evaluations. I am particularly interested in examining the relationship between emotion and sociomoral judgement.
