Area(s) of Expertise
My academic pursuits are interdisciplinary and varied, focusing on the intersection of research and practice in child development. I examine longitudinal trajectories of micro family processes, school socialization pathways, and child achievement and socio-emotional outcomes. I am particularly interested in the cumulative developmental deprivation of poverty and low levels of education. Furthermore, I am invested in examining new ways of investigating such trajectories within statistics. My broader academic passions include international education issues and the preservation of the best interest of the child from a humanitarian perspective.
I aim to teach my courses from an applied point of view, encouraging students to acquire practical knowledge for utilization in their future practitioner roles.
