Caroline Fitzpatrick holds a doctorate in psychoeducation from the University of Montréal. She is an associate professor at the University of Sherbrooke and holds the Canada Research Chair in Digital Media Use by Children and Its Implications for Promoting Togetherness: An Ecosystemic Approach. Her research focuses on the origins of health and education inequalities. There is a consensus that certain experiences and environments early in life have a significant impact on future development. Consequently, an important objective of her research is to identify how individual (executive functions) and modifiable contextual (exposure to screens) factors shape children’s academic success and well-being. Her research findings can thus contribute to the development of preventive interventions and cost-effective social policies aimed at improving public health.
