Meriah Lee DeJoseph, BOLD writer
Postdoctoral Fellow at Stanford University

Meriah DeJoseph is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University’s Center on Early Childhood. Her research on the effects of poverty on children’s cognitive and self-regulation development is motivated by her own experience of growing up below the poverty line.
