Academic Interests

My program of research examines contextual influences (neighbourhoods, schools, families) on child health and development, with an emphasis on immigrant children and families. In particular, I am interested in quantifying the relative impact of ecological contexts on developmental outcomes, disaggregating the influences of socio-economic characteristics and social processes operating within these contexts and modeling the extent to which ecological contexts may influence immigrant and non-immigrant children differently. Understanding how social contexts and biological processes operate conjointly to influence developmental health represents an area of research interest.
