I recently received my BA in psychology from McGill University. My master’s research will focus on the emotional processes (e.g. emotion regulation and emotion recognition) underlying children’s development of kindness. The goal of this research is to further our understanding of how children use internal and external emotional information to navigate the social world. In particular, I am interested in how the development of vital socio-emotional skills interact with moral emotions, such as sympathy, to promote prosocial behaviours.
