Postdoctoral researcher

Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München

I am a postdoctoral researcher in developmental psychology in the Social Development Lab at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität in Munich, Germany. I investigate how children learn about the rules, norms and values of their community. My main focus lies on studying how preschoolers discuss moral issues with their friends, their parents or other adults and how these interactions shape their moral development.
