Biography

Doug is a developmental scientist whose research is focused on infant and early child development. He has had a long-standing interest in socio-emotional development in early childhood (e.g., quality of attachment to parents), parenting competence and parenting at risk, how parenting is affected by parental mental health and contextual factors, and how parenting affects infant and child functioning. All of his current projects examine the joint, interactive effects of biological/medical and environmental/parenting factors on child development and parenting during the early years of life. All are interdisciplinary and involve graduate and undergraduate students, and his students draw from the projects they work on in developing their own areas of expertise. Doug believes that the students who work with him should develop into productive scholars in their own fields of expertise, and thus his students are actively involved in all phases of research, from data collection and coding and data analysis, to being co-authors and lead authors on presentations and peer-reviewed papers.
