About the author:

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).

What I want to achieve:

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.
