Research interests  

In my work I am mostly interested in the development of normative and mentalistic reasoning.

  • On what grounds do children make moral judgments?
  • When do children consider different motives for actions in their normative evaluations?
  • How and when do children distinguish between different types of social norms?
  • When does an understanding of different kinds of mental states develop? How is the relation of intentions, beliefs and desires in development?
  • How and under which conditions does normative and mental state reasoning interact?
  • How can the normative assessment of an action influence the ascription of underlying mental states?
