I am interested in understanding which factors, or which combination of factors, can set children up for success and optimal child development. These include child-specific factors (e.g., temperament), family factors (e.g., parenting, screen time), and community factors (e.g., neighbourhood quality).
With the knowledge gained by our research, we hope to test interventions that effectively improve children’s life chances and, in turn, promote society’s long-term health, stability, and prosperity.
