Personal profile

Research Interests

I am a developmental and clinical psychologist with postdoctoral training in econometrics. My research bridges child development and social policy, and focuses on two major goals. The first goal is to understand how antisocial behavior (i.e., aggression, disregard for rules, delinquency, crime) develops from early childhood, how it gets passed on - or does not get passed on - within families, and how it can be prevented. The second goal is to understand the role of income and poverty in children's development and to test the effects of preventive family intervention, income policy, and family policy, on children's development.
