Clancy Blair is a professor of applied psychology at New York University's School of Culture, Education and Human Development. A developmental psychologist, he studies self-regulation in young children. His primary interest concerns the development of cognitive abilities referred to as executive functions and the ways in which these aspects of cognition are important for school readiness and early school achievement. He is also interested in the development and evaluation of preschool and elementary school curricula designed to promote executive functions as a means of preventing school failure.

This colloquium is co-sponsored by the Human Development and Social Policy program at the School of Education and Social Policy and Cells to Society (C2S): The Center on Social Disparities and Health at the Institute for Policy Research.
