Fabienne Doucet brings an interdisciplinary perspective to her research and teaching in Early Childhood Education, given her training in human development and family studies, which stands at the crossroads of developmental psychology, sociology, and anthropology. Her program of research examines how immigrant and U.S.-born children of color and their families navigate education in the United States and how taken-for-granted beliefs, practices, and values of the U.S. educational system position at a disadvantage children and families who are linguistically, culturally, and socioeconomically diverse. A critical ethnographer, Doucet is committed to addressing equity and injustice in education, and to bringing the educational experiences of marginalized groups to the center of inquiry. She has received numerous hornors and awards, most recently a grant from the Society for Research in Child Development to launch a research initiative on child development in Haiti, and a Fulbright-Hays fellowship to conduct research on educational reform in Haiti. Doucet is Program Leader for the programs in Childhood Education in the Department of Teaching and Learning, an affiliated faculty member of the NYU Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and a research associate of the Interuniversity Institute for Research and Development (INURED), Haiti. Doucet has a Ph.D. in human development and family studies from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and was a postdoctoral fellow at the Harvard University Graduate School of Education with fellowships from the National Science Foundation and the Spencer Foundation.
