Research Interests
My interests focus on using a mixed methods approach to explore the relationships between economic disadvantage, parents' own human capital and well-being, parenting practices, and young children's development, as well as the mechanisms underlying relationships (for example, children's physiological stress system). I am also interested in the design, implementation and evaluation of programs and policies that foster healthy child development through strengthening the early environments in which children live.
