anoyesHonors Psychology Major with Gender and Sexuality Studies Minor Areas of interest: social/cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, and the psychology of gender. Specifics of Research: My current research explores children’s inductive reasoning (using a sample of evidence to draw larger conclusions); specifically, their ability to distinguish between better (more informative) and worse (less informative) samples or evidence. Examples of questions I ask: Do the categories represented in the sample matter (e..g, whether its people, animals, or objects)? Does the object of their inductive reasoning matter (e.g., whether they’re reasoning about biological properties, behaviors, or preferences)?
