I am interested in how the philosophical arguments of free will can be empirically researched in young children's intuitions and beliefs. Specifically, I study how young children's understanding of free will relates to their social and moral relationships with other people and non-human agents (like robots). Outside of the ECC lab, I am also the secretary for Cornell's Graduate Women in Science organization, and I am in Ithaca's comedy improv group, Comedy FLOPs.
