Dr. Christine Legare
Dr. Legare is the director of the Department's "Cognition, Culture, & Development Lab," and is a core faculty member in the Developmental Area and affiliated faculty in the Cognitive Systems Area. Here's a excerpt from her lab's website:
We study cognitive development from an interdisciplinary perspective by using a variety of methods to examine how children learn across cultures. We conduct research on a number of foundational research topics in cognitive developmental psychology including causal reasoning, social learning, the development of scientific and supernatural beliefs, and science education.
