My research interests lie primarily in early childhood moral development. I am interested in how early care, including early education impact prosocial and moral development. I am also interested in ecological morality, and how environmental concerns relate to morality.

Jenny has presented work related to child development and morality at the Society for Research on Adolescence, the Jean Piaget Society, the Association for Moral Education, and the American Educational Research Association.
