Allie Nancarrow -Postdoctoral researcher

Allie is working on our Nuffield-funded study on the gene-environment interplay in early life cognitive development. Her current research interests broadly include ecological impacts on children’s educational achievement, parent well-being, and social cognition.

In her previous post as a Postdoctoral Scholar in the College of Public Health and Human Sciences at Oregon State University, Allie worked on studies of children’s self-regulation and school readiness. In her doctoral research in the Psychology Department at the University of Alabama, Allie investigated ecological factors at the family and neighbourhood level, such as household chaos and concentrated disadvantage, and their associations with children’s emotion regulation and parent well-being in a low-income sample.
