Dr. Owen earned her doctorate in Developmental Psychology from the University of Michigan and is the Robinson Family Professor at the University of Texas at Dallas. Her research interests focus primarily on children's relationships with their parents and others who care for them, and how the quality of these relationships nurture children's optimal growth and development.

Her recent work centers on the role of self-regulation in children's readiness for school and how parents help their preschool children develop these important skills.
