About us:

At the Human Diversity Lab we study social and cognitive development. We are interested in learning about how children and adolescents think about themselves and the people around them. Some of our primary lines of work focus on the emergence and development of social identities, prejudice and discrimination, children's understanding of inequality, and prosocial behavior. We use diverse experimental, correlational, and observational methods including tools from developmental science and social psychology to address these questions. To do this research we recruit families with children ages 3-17 years old for in-person studies (families living in the New Jersey area) and for online studies (families living in the United States).

Our lab is a part of the Princeton Baby Lab / Big Kid / Teen Lab, a group of labs that collaborate on research about childhood development. If you are interested in having your child participate in our lab's studies and studies from other labs at Princeton University please click the sign up link below to fill out the registry interest form.
