On December 2nd, 2016, UBC received a $11.5 million boost in federal funding to support researchers who “improve our scientific understanding and strengthen Canada’s reputation for research excellence.” Please join us in congratulating Dr. Kiley Hamlin, whose Canada Research Chair appointment was renewed.
Dr. Kiley Hamlin, Canada Research Chair of Developmental Psychology, focuses her research on the role of evaluative processes in our everyday cognitions about the world. Particularly, she explores the developmental building blocks of moral action and judgement in infancy before the influence of cultural norms and values. Through her research, she hopes to identify how these early building blocks interact with culture and other aspects of cognitive development to create mature moral beings.
Kiley Hamlin is also part of the Early Development Research Group, a consortium of six research centers interested in the development of language, learning, and social understanding in infants and children.
The Canada Research Chairs program is part of a national strategy to attract and retain some of the world’s most accomplished researchers. More information about the Canada Research Chair program can be found here.
