Research

Research interests

- Intergenerational pathways of development.

- Developmental predictors of caregiving and the parent-infant bond.

- Autonomy development in adolescence.

- The development of fathers: Family history and individual factors that influence the experience of fathering and predict paternal behaviours.

- The role of temperament in family and peer relationships.

Jacqui's research draws largely from the Australian Temperament Project (ATP) and the Victorian Adolescent Health Cohort Study (VAHCS). Both are prospective intergenerational studies with ongoing recruitment of offspring of the original main cohorts.
