I am a first-year PhD student working with Tania Lombrozo at Princeton University. I study how causal reasoning – how people attribute causes to outcomes, events, or beliefs – and moral reasoning – how people decide who, what, and when to morally blame – are intertwined. Specifically, how do people form explanations for why things happen, and what kinds of explanations are viewed as good or preferable? In what ways does this process of forming explanations shape the moral judgments that we make, and vice versa? I study these topics in both adults and children from perspectives of psychology and philosophy.
