The overall aim of my research program is to study the influence of early caregiving relationships on children’s developmental pathways. Specific scientific interests include parent-child relationships, infant and adult attachment, sleep regulation, theory of mind, and executive functioning in young children, as well as at-risk populations and atypical forms of parenting and attachment. My lab is currently pursuing a longitudinal study of 200 Montreal families, first recruited when children were 6 months of age, and who are now entering school. This project is funded by SSHRC, FRSQ and FQRSC.
