Personal Statement

My professional career has encompassed the distinct and intersecting areas of developmental science and ethics. As a developmental psychologist I have always been interested in the interface between developmental science and its implications for real world policy and practices. My research, teaching and professional service reflect my belief that social science plays an essential role in ensuring that the moral foundation of science, practice and policy reflects the hopes and values of those whose lives they affect. To this end, my research has focused on development of ethnic minority children and youth, young adults with alcohol and drug addictions, and how persons with mental retardation, individuals with drug addictions and other vulnerable populations of all ages perceive and respond to ethical dimensions of healthcare practices and social science research. My belief that science needs to serve society led me to join with other pioneers in establishing the field of graduate training in Applied Developmental Science, establishing and directing Fordham’s doctoral program in applied developmental psychology, and co-founding the journal Applied Developmental Science. I have also had the privilege of chairing and serving on government and organizational committees where I have striven to advocate for regulatory and organizational policies informed by empirical knowledge on the lived experience of individuals across the broad landscape of American diversity to ensure health research and services best serve the common good.
