Research Interests and Goals:

Dr. Mulvey is a developmental scientist with a quantitative focus on social development in intergroup contexts. She completed her training in Human Development and Quantitative Methodology (PhD 2013) at the University of Maryland.  She conducts research examining theory of mind, social exclusion, and group dynamics, including when children challenge peer group norms. Her work focuses on intergroup contexts and examines the influence of children’s bias, prejudice, and stereotypes on their intergroup relations. She also examines broadening the participation of underrepresented groups in the STEM fields and understanding stereotypes regarding who can and should be a scientist.
