I am interested in how policies shape the contexts of human development, and in particular the links between policy, the skills and attitudes of the adults children interact with, and children’s development. I use quantitative methods to explore how policy-alterable features of early childhood education programs impact the quality of children's experiences and thereby exacerbate or ameliorate income-based disparities in children’s development, with particular attention to social and emotional outcomes.
