Alison is a fourth-year doctoral student working in Dr. Adam Winsler's lab.

She graduated from Virginia Tech with a B.S. in Psychology in 2009 and received her M.A. in Social Sciences from The University of Chicago in 2016. She previously worked as a research associate at UChicago's TMW Center for Early Learning + Public Health. She was drawn to the center's mission to enact change in the lives of underserved children through innovative parent-directed programs. Her current research interests include understanding the association of early childhood poverty experiences, including persistence and mobility, with later academic achievements. She is also exploring variability in parent-report measurements of early childhood skills/behaviors and their predictability with later outcomes.
