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.
