My research focuses on early life influences on development. During pregnancy and the early postnatal years, environmental factors are more likely to exert programming, or long-term, effects on the child’s development. I specifically focus on work-life combinations of parents during this period of the first 1000 days. Questions that are e.g. answered are: how do parents experience their return to work after having a baby? How do these experiences affect their care for the baby? How can we help parents transition smoothly back to work?
