People

The Child Self-Regulation Lab, under the direction of Dr. Karen Milligan, is made up of postdoctoral research fellows, graduate students, undergraduate thesis students, staff, and volunteers, with interests and backgrounds in psychology and related disciplines (e.g., public health). We often work in collaboration with other researchers and clinicians in the Toronto area and across Canada.
