Research Interests

Angela recently completed her PhD that investigated the association between the type, time and quality of child care experienced by infants (0-1 years) and toddlers (2-3 years) and these children's cognitive and socio-emotional development when they started school.  Her research interests include understanding inequalities in child health and development and identifying interventions to reduce these disparities.
