Dr. Moreno's research interests focus primarily on the study of familial influences on children's learning and academic achievement. He is particularly interested in how cultural variations in early parental teaching styles impact children's learning. He is also interested in the role of the family in the education of young children, and how the family contributes to children's academic success or failure.
