Academic Interests: Larisa uses methods from social, cognitive, and developmental psychology as well as neuroscience to investigate the ways that children and adults learn to reason about others’ beliefs (including religious beliefs) and how such reasoning might influence intergroup attitudes. She is currently extending this work to the domain of morality by investigating how children and adults make moral judgments.
