      Research Interests

      I have broad research interests in the following areas: (1) the Psychology of Reasoning; (2) Cognitive Development; (3) Moral Psychology, and (4) The Philosophy of Cognitive Science. More specifically, my research interests include the origin and development (i.e., ontogeny) of deontic reasoning in young children, and adult deontic competence. Thus, I am primarily interested in addressing questions pertaining to the acquisition of deontic concepts and their logical interrelations, how such capacities develop from an early age to adulthood, and whether the deontc competence of adults is more complex than what is currently hypothesized by cognitive scientists.
