Hannah J. Kramer
Ph.D. Candidate in Developmental Psychology
I study developmental differences and continuities in social cognition, emotion understanding, temporal reasoning, emotion processing, and executive function.
More specifically, I am interested in children's and adults' beliefs about the interplay between time and mental states. In one line of research, I examine what children and adults think about the time course of internal experiences (e.g., How long does sadness last?). In other projects, I test children's and adults' knowledge of how thinking about moments in time (past and future) shape emotions (e.g., Do past emotional events influence future reactions to negative and positive events?).
