Bridging basic and applied science, Liew’s research has addressed issues such as school readiness, achievement gaps, mental health disparities, and childhood obesity. Liew has been referred to as the “Father of the Yin and Yang of Parenting” for his pioneering research on Asian American parenting that contributes to children growing into emotionally and academically competent young adults; he has been invited to present this research across North America and Asia. Dr. Liew’s research on emotion and self-regulation has been supported by research grants through the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NIH-NICHD), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), National Academies Keck Futures Initiative (NAKFI), and the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health. He presently serves as Associate Editor for Early Education & Development, and as consulting editor for Early Childhood Research Quarterly, the Journal of Genetic Psychology, Learning and Individual Differences, and the Journal of Reading Psychology. Liew is active in his scholarly communities, serving as a 2-term elected representative of TAMU’s Council of Principal Investigators (CPI) and as a member of the CPI executive committee, and as peer reviewer for national and international funding agencies, including NIH and NSF.
