In the Culture and Child Development Lab, housed in the Psychology Department at Brooklyn College, we examine the role of culture and context in child development. Specifically, we ask: 1) How does socioeconomic context shape children’s development?; 2) How do children’s everyday interactions vary by cultural context?; and 3) How do settings (e.g., childcare, school, neighborhoods) shape children’s learning trajectories?


To answer these questions, we use a combination of survey, interview, and observational methods to capture daily experiences of infants and their families.
