To be accepted as adult members of their communities, children must adopt many behaviors that are unique to their society, ranging from dancing, to preparing food, to sharing.
How do they accomplish this?
My research explores
the universal human
psychology for learning
social norms, and the
of cultural diversity.
I focus on understanding how our prosocial behavior is shaped by
learned fairness norms, along with evolved adaptations for prosociality
and reciprocity that we may share
with other primates.
