Research Interests

My research focuses primarily on "determinants" of infant and child development. Much of my research emphasizes the role of physical and social environmental influences, and the moderation of these influences by individual difference characteristics such as temperament. I also study the influence of chronic mild malnutrition upon development, as well as interactions and covariances between malnutrition and environmental risk factors and buffers. I also have an interest in behavioral genetics, with specific reference to genotype-environment interaction and covariance.
