Research Interests:

  • My current research interest is understanding the effect of parenting style on child outcomes. Parenting style can be understood as a qualitative dimension of parental investment that is not often captured in previous research. For this research I am constructing a model of parent-child interaction with different parenting strategies. To test the model, I am analyzing data on randomized intervention on parenting skill as well as nationally representative observational data.
