About Me

My name is Young-eun Lee.
I am a graduate student 
in the Department of Psychology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

I study children’s punishment of selfish individuals (i.e., altruistic punishment). My research focuses on answering questions like:

  • How do children evaluate and reason about those who punish unfair or selfish individuals?
  • What are the underlying motivations of altruistic punishment in children?

Prior to joining Social Minds Lab at UM, I studied moral understanding in infants with looking-time measures and received a master’s degree in Psychology from Yonsei University, South Korea.
