She received her Ph.D. in developmental psychology from the University of Michigan, and is interested in how young children learn and reason about their social world. Whether you may think so or not, research shows that kids are paying attention and soaking up all the complexities of life as a social human. By 13 months, they have a pretty decent understanding of tense, complex social situations, making mental notes of who witnessed the offending incident and whether it was purposeful or accidental. Now, new research is also shedding some light on how kids learn about power dynamics in social situations. Dr. Selin Gulgoz shares her research.
