Hello! I'm Arcadia
I'm passionate about preparing children of all backgrounds to succeed and meet their cognitive potential. Broadly, my research interests involve the effects of early adversity and chronic stress on neurocognitive development with the intent on improving long-term cognitive and academic outcomes for underserved populations. As a scientist, I am eager to leverage data to make lasting real-world impacts.
