Assistant Professor, Department of Population Health
I am a developmental psychologist with expertise in multi-level influences on child health and development. My work aims to advance health and educational equity by understanding and supporting the development of skills and health behaviors that promote academic success and healthy development for children of color living in historically disinvested neighborhoods, with a focus on self-regulation in early childhood.
I hold a BASc in cognitive science from McGill University, an EdM in mind, brain and education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and a PhD in developmental psychology from NYU. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the Neuro-Epidemiology Training Program at Columbia University. My research has been published in numerous journals including Child Development and Developmental Psychology.
