Intérêts de recherche

Academic under achievement represents a costly social problem. Classroom enagagement indicative of executive functioning is a robust predictor of later academic performance. What remains to be examined is how contextual factors like teacher-child relations help sustain classroom engagement and achivement over the course of elementary school.

  • Researcher. United States. Since 2016, I am a member of the CAFÉ consortium, which comprises researchers from 8 countries. The consortium’s mission, lead by PI Rachel Barr at Georgetown University is to develop a comprehensive assessment of family media exposure. As a member of the CAFÉ consortium I benefit from access to a data scientist who is tasked with the cleaning and compiling of study variables and who will also be available to provide analytic consultation. The CAFÉ materials have been translated into 5 languages and are currently being translated into French. Finally, CAFÉ has implemented a shared data platform across collection sites. Our objective in data sharing is to help accelerate and facilitate scientific discoveries in this field.
  • Researcher. United States. Since 2016, I have been collaborating with Aubrey Wang (Saint-Joseph's University) on empirically validating and extending the opportunity propensity model of early achievement with Canadian and American data sets.
