Dr. Anderson's interests focus on the development of young children, particularly in the context of the family (parent-child relationships). In addition, because the majority of his career has included a connection with Child Development Laboratories, much of his work has concentrated on developmentally appropriate practice, quality care settings, and the preparation of preservice teachers. He has interests in the area of infant and toddler development, particularly the influence that parents have on social and emotional development.
"I was reared in Syracuse, Utah, near the Great Salt Lake and access point to Antelope Island. After high school, I attended Utah State University in Logan, Utah, where I met my wife, Diana. Together we have five sons, who for the most part, enjoy soccer, gaming and string instruments. When I'm not working, I volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America program and enjoy camping, hiking, and backpacking. Some of my most recent hikes include the Teton mountain range in Wyoming and the Southwest quadrant of Yellowstone (known for its spectacular waterfalls). Also, I've taken an interest in gardening."
