Her research project aims to identify the impact and economic spinoffs of Quebec political interventions on the cognitive and non-cognitive development of young children. In particular, it will analyze the impact of two Quebec public policies: the preschool for four-year-olds-program, as well as the impact of the school interruption caused by the pandemic, as part of a study carried out for the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEES).
