Hi there, I'm Adani!



I’m currently a master’s student in Psychology and Learning Sciences at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU Munich) and a Visiting Research Scholar at the Bonawitz CoCoDev Lab at Harvard University.

Broadly speaking, I’m interested in how children seek and build knowledge, particularly how their interactions with the social world inform their reasoning and learning about the physical world.

Ultimately, my goal is to draw on research to find ways of providing children with positive early learning experiences in their early school years, especially to foster their curiosity.

In my free time, I sometimes blog and dabble in small webdesign / data viz / miscellaneous coding projects. I always enjoy exchanging ideas and thoughts with others, so please don’t hesitate to reach out!


Feb 23, 2023 I have arrived in Boston, MA; in the coming months, I will be writing my master’s thesis with the Bonawitz CoCoDev Lab at Harvard University! :) If you’re in the area and up for a chat, feel free to reach out!
Jan 4, 2023 I’m attending my first in-person conference, the Budapest CEU Conference on Cognitive Development (BCCCD)! I will be giving a poster presentation there; you can view the poster here.
