Kylie has a BA in Child Studies and an MSc in Neuroscience from Carleton University. Her research with the Neuroscience of Imagination, Cognition, and Emotion Research (NICER) Lab  has predominantly focused on the various factors associated with socioeconomic status that influence children’s neurocognitive development, primarily targeting regions of the brain responsible for executive function (i.e. memory, planning, attention, cognitive flexibility,  inhibitory control). Her research experience has been complemented with applied work in Early Childhood Education. She is especially interested in knowledge translation and early intervention strategies aimed at supporting children’s healthy development – making HALO a perfect fit! As a Research Coordinator with HALO, Kylie is looking forward to translating her research interests into practice. She will be primarily working with Dr. Katie Gunnell on research examining the influence of physical activity and sedentary behavior on children’s neurocognitive development, and will assist with various research projects with Dr. Mark Tremblay. In her spare time, Kylie enjoys taking her dog “Nera”, a black lab-shepherd mix, for long walks along the river with her husband. She loves travelling (especially to escape the Canadian winter!) and spending time swimming at Petrie Island and canoeing along the Rideau River during the summer.
