Dr. Englund is a researcher and affiliate member of the graduate faculty at the Institute of Child Development. Dr. Englund has a vast array of research experience including research evaluating early childhood education programs, longitudinal research following low-income participants from early in life through adulthood, and research developing and testing instructional designs for early childhood educators. She conducts research with the Institute of Child Development, the Human Capital Research Collaborative, and the Center for Early Education and Development. She currently a co-investigator on both the Minnesota Longitudinal Study of Risk and Adaptation, funded by the National Institute on Aging, and Measuring oral narrative and theatrical skills of preschool children, funded by the National Endowment for the Arts.  

Much of her research work has examined how early relationships influence later competence, including educational success. She is particularly interested in relationship factors that impact children’s learning, the effects of poverty on children’s educational success, and early childhood interventions. Dr. Englund’s research in both the MLSRA and the Chicago Longitudinal Study is currently focused on examining the developmental predictors of patterns of substance use across adolescence and into adulthood, and adult functioning, including health outcomes, resulting from the interplay between earlier development, current circumstances, and substance use. Dr. Englund has expertise in developmental psychology, longitudinal methodology, statistical analysis, and evaluation of early childhood interventions.
