Current research interests
The environment of childhood poverty: what role do psychosocial and physical risk factors, particularly as the accumulate, play in the adverse impacts of childhood poverty on human development. I am also interested in stress as a model for how poverty impacts child development.
Pathways and mechanisms: Cumulative and additive social risk exposures (e.g. transient v. persistent poverty). Stress and allostatic load. | Methodological issues: Methods for examining change over time including longitudinal effects studies. Root cause analysis to inform policy change.
