Marvin So is a program evaluation fellow at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Child Development and Disability Branch. He conducts applied children's mental health services research, centered on: (1) characterizing the health and developmental needs of at-risk and special needs children; and (2) evaluating family-focused interventions to foster healthy socioemotional and cognitive development, particularly within historically under-represented settings (e.g., homeless shelters, correctional facilities). Prior to his current role Marvin worked as a home visitor for families involved in multiple systems spanning child welfare, emergency housing, and juvenile justice. He served as a children's health advisor for the 2016 Zika virus emergency response, and as principal investigator on a multi-city study exploring the feasibility of developmental screening in service settings for families experiencing homelessness. His primary goal is to shape radically inclusive systems capable of setting all children on more hopeful, healthy, and equitable developmental trajectories.
