Social competence is central to understanding adaptive functioning in social and academic contexts across the lifespan. My research lies at the intersection of development and learning and aims to understand the processes by which young children’s cognitive and behavioral regulation skills develop. I also seek to evaluate the impact of these skills on subsequent learning outcomes among understudied and at-risk populations of children. Ultimately, I intend to use my research to inform the development of prevention/intervention programs and inform policy for young children.
