About the author:

I study the development and promotion of early childhood health, education, and well-being. I conduct laboratory experiments, prospective longitudinal studies, and evaluations of interventions and public policies.

What I want to achieve:

I hope to help public policy-making become more evidence-based, and I hope to create systems of care for young children and families that improve their health, education, and well-being.

Founding and past director of the Duke University Center for Child and Family Policy.

Awards & accomplishments:
