During my graduate school, my research primarily focused on school-aged children. Having the opportunity to do my post-doctoral fellowship at Hincks-Dellcrest centre, I would like to learn more about younger children. Language, cognitive, and social-emotional development of young children has always fascinated me. In addition, I am interested in studying children from disadvantaged populations such as low SES and new immigrants and how different factors affect children’s school readiness. I am also interested in learning about prevention and early intervention programs for infants and young children specially those from disadvantaged families.

The language and culture of my heritage is passed on to me orally. it's a different way off learning than how I am taught at school. How do I keep my traditional culture alive while learning to read and being immersed in the majority culture?

Reading is the core of learning and staying in school . improving reading skills with young Aboriginal children can open up the doors to future prospects.
