Robin is a PhD student in Early Childhood Education at New York University. Erin is her doctoral advisor. Robin studies children's relationships with their preschool teachers and parents and is especially interested in how those relationships relate to anxiety in early childhood. She is working on data analysis for a study co-led by Erin of the long term impacts of INSIGHTS, an early childhood social emotional intervention that was implemented in elementary schools across New York City.
Before coming to NYU, Robin worked in preschools and elementary schools in Madrid, Copenhagen, St. Louis, and New York City. Those experiences connecting with children and teachers in the classroom and seeing theory come to life cemented her fascination with child development. Robin also worked with teams of researchers studying attachment theory and child anxiety at the Yale Child Study Center, Washington University in St. Louis, and Copenhagen University. She graduated from Washington University in St. Louis where she studied Psychology and Children's Studies.
