Diverging Destinies: Maternal Education and the Developmental Gradient in Time with Children
Ariel Kalil

We are pleased to welcome Ariel Kalil, professor in the Harris School of Public Policy and director of the Center for Human Potential and Public Policy at the University of Chicago for this seminar. Kalil is a developmental psychologist who studies how economic conditions affect child and family functioning. Her projects have examined how transitions from welfare to work affect mothers and children, barriers to the employment of welfare recipients, and family processes and child development in female-headed, teenage-parent, and cohabiting-couple households.
