My passion for improving physical and mental health outcomes in vulnerable children and their families is driven by the enduring impact of early experience on children’s later development. Early prevention and intervention is a cost-effective approach to increasing the quality of life of a child and family, and it benefits society in terms of saving many resources. To achieve my overarching goal, my research has focused on three areas of maternal and child health: 1) investigation of etiological factors underlying health disparities in underserved women and children and development of the interventions to reduce health disparity; 2) the examination of ecological factors that influence child development; and 3) the design and testing of early interventions for promoting developmental outcomes in at-risk children.
