My research focus is in elementary cognitive processes with respect to the development of relational knowledge investigating representations of relational motives and preferences in preverbal infants.
In addition, I am interested in research with adult populations concerning cognitive complexity and flexibility in relational space, perceptual autonomy, and discourse relating to the themes of belonging and identity within society.
