Danielle C. Stacey is a doctoral student in the Eliot-Pearson Department of Child Study and Human Development at Tufts University. She earned a B.S. in Psychology from the University of Wollongong, Australia where she investigated a parent-training intervention delivered in the Illawarra community of New South Wales. Prior to her role at IARYD, she worked as a clinical research coordinator at Massachusetts General Hospital department of pediatric neurology.

In her work at the Institute, she applies a developmental approach to understanding how media can be optimized to promote positive development in children and families. Currently, Danielle is evaluating the Arthur Interactive Media Buddy Project, a media-based intervention intended to promote character development in elementary school age children. Danielle's other research interests include the role of parasocial relationships in moral development, cultural differences in media use, and mixed-methods analysis.
