Kimberly Noble, M.D., Ph.D., is an assistant professor of pediatrics at Columbia University, where she studies socioeconomic disparities in children's neurocognitive development. Trained as a developmental cognitive neuroscientist and pediatrician, she received her Ph.D. in neuroscience and her medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania. Current research interests include the time course with which socioeconomic disparities in neurocognition emerge in early childhood; the modifiable environmental factors that mediate such disparities; and the brain-behavior relationships that account for these links. Additionally, Noble is involved in several studies of interventions, including a program targeting children's literacy, math and self-regulation skills, as well as a study of the effects of experimental poverty reduction on cognitive and brain development. Noble was recently named an Association for Psychological Science “Rising Star.”
