My research examines the effects of economic disadvantage and adversity on children’s neurobiologically based systems of self-regulation, including executive function, HPA-axis, and emotion regulation, and their consequences on children’s social, emotional and academic adjustment.

I focus on the protective effects of parents and families, and using a bioecological framework, study the interplay among individual, interpersonal, community and broader social factors in contributing to children’s vulnerable or resilient responses to adversity.
