About the speaker

Kimberly Noble is a professor of neuroscience and education at Teachers College, Columbia University, and a member of the Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology. Her research focuses on how socioeconomic inequality relates to children's brain and cognitive development across infancy, childhood and adolescence.

Noble is particularly interested in understanding how early in infancy or toddlerhood such disparities develop; the modifiable environmental differences that account for these disparities; and the ways we might harness this research to inform the design of interventions.

She has received funding from NIH and numerous foundations, and she is one of the principal investigators of Baby's First Years, the first clinical trial of poverty reduction to assess the causal impact of income on children’s cognitive, emotional and brain development in the first three years of life.
