Current research projects

With a group of neuroscientists and developmental psychologists, I am developing a random-assignment evaluation of whether money matters for a child’s early years. The project’s website is here.  We finished recruiting our 1,000 mothers and newborns in June 2019.

With Tyler Watts, I am reanalyzing data from the Tennessee Voluntary Pre-K (TNVPK) random-assignment experiment designed by Mark Lipsey and Dale Farran.
