My research explores social and moral development in childhood and adolescence. Specifically, I am interested in speciesism (the assignment of different moral value based on species membership) in different cultural contexts, and how social norms and group processes influence children's thinking about animals. My supervisors are Dr Luke McGuire and Professor Adam Rutland.
