Emma Armstrong-Carter

My research program lies at the intersection of education policy and early childhood development. I research (1) family processes which impact young children’s learning and wellbeing (2) how to improve children’s learning and wellbeing when they are experiencing daily challenges at home such as family disability, family illness, or difficult relationships. My research informs the design of school- and government-based policies that support young children’s educational success.

In 2021, I will be entering the academic job market for assistant professor positions at research universities. If you are interested in my work, please contact me at emmaac@stanford.edu!
