Academic interests

I am part of the Social and Intergroup Relations Lab led by Lotte Thomsen.

My research focus, as part of the group project entitled “A Social Grammar of Relational Forms”, is in elementary cognitive processes with respect to the instantiation and development of relational knowledge investigating:

  • Core representations and mappings of relational motives and preferences in infants

  • Levels of cognitive complexity and flexibility in relational space

  • Perceptual autonomy as a generalized social orientation

  • Social exclusion
