Emma Armstrong-Carter

Emma Armstrong-Carter is now a National Science Foundation post-doctoral research fellow at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Please visit her website at: and contact her at  
Emma graduated with her Ph.D from the Stanford Graduate School of Education in 2022, where she was also a fellow in the Stanford Data Science Initiative and the Institute of Education Sciences Center for Education Policy Analysis. Before her current position, she also completed a post-doc at the University of California, Berkeley.

Emma's research program lies at the intersection of child development, data science, and education policy.

She researches how children’s experiences of helping others (e.g., family and peers) can promote their own learning and wellbeing. Further, she investigates how children’s experiences helping others can both exacerbate and mitigate the challenges that many children experience in homes with family disability, family illness, or difficult relationships.
