My research concerns children's early social and cognitive development - how young children participate in social interactions with other people and interpret their behavior. I am especially interested in how children learn about the world through what other people do, so called social referencing. The central questions include why children choose to trust information from some people over others.
My research also addresses how children and youth with vision loss learn about the world, for example through their social interactions.
I am further interested in how children learn by imitating others' behavior and how this develops. A final interest area is children's ability to regulate strong emotions och what affects this ability.
