Georgene Troseth

Associate Professor of Psychology
Vanderbilt Kennedy Center for Research on Human Development

Professor Troseth's research focuses on young children's symbolic development, including their understanding of symbolic artifacts (e.g., pictures, video images, scale models) and of the intent to symbolize. In the general area of knowledge representation, Troseth is specifically interested in children's representations of the mental states - the intentions, beliefs, desires, and knowledge - of other people.
