Academic Interests

My PhD research focuses on the development of child’s socio-cognition.

More precisely, my research investigates the relation between Theory of Mind and the use of Theory of Mind in social interaction with peers and teachers.

I am interested in analyzing the theoretical and methodological implications of studying children’s ability of understanding other’s mind and emotion both in the context of laboratory and during social interactions within school environment.
