My current research supervised by Dr Josephine Ross involves exploring the relationship between peer popularity, theory of mind and prosocial behaviour in children from preschool through to middle childhood. I am interested in children’s willingness to behave prosocially towards others and the contributing factors involved in this. Does prosocial behaviour improve social status within peer groups? Does advanced theory of mind enable a greater willingness to cooperate? How does peer acceptance affect the continuing development of theory of mind?
