    Daniel A. Hackman is interested in how social and environmental contexts influence developmental trajectories of health and well-being across the lifecourse. He investigates how socioeconomic, family, and neighborhood factors, particularly those in early childhood, become associated with the cognitive, affective, and biological systems that influence healthy development. His focus has been on executive function and stress reactivity, at the behavioral, physiological, neurobiological level. He is also interested in the social experiences and mechanisms that can promote health and attenuate risk processes, as Dr. Hackman aims to leverage this work to identify more effective policy and programmatic approaches to prevent and reduce socioeconomic disparities.

    Dr. Hackman uses a multi-method, interdisciplinary approach, often longitudinal in nature, integrating tools from population health, psychology, neuroscience, and social work. Recently, he has also developed a virtual reality-based experimental model of neighborhood disadvantage and affluence that can be employed to study neighborhood effects on development.

    Prior to his appointment at USC, Dr. Hackman was a Robert Wood Johnson Health & Society Scholar at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He completed his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Pennsylvania, and a predoctoral clinical internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinics, part of the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication.
