Dr. Edward Melhuish

Photo of Dr. Edward MelhuishDr. Edward Melhuish is Professor of Human Development at Birkbeck, University of London and Visit­ing Professorial Fellow at the Institute of Education, University of London.  Professor Melhuish is an interna­tionally recognised expert in the study of child development and has extensive experience with longitudi­nal studies. He is a veteran of banging at the doors of government, demanding that robust research be used in the formulation of policy. As principal investigator of studies of early education and family life in the 1980s, he had considerable influence on sections of the 1989 Children Act. He has also conducted research on child development, parenting and childcare in several European countries, on behalf of the European Commission.

A father of five, Dr. Melhuish is unwavering in his conviction that research should always have one eye on the impact it can make on the real lives of children. He continues this approach as a Principal Investigator on the EPPE projects.

In addition, Professor Melhuish is Executive Director of the National Evaluation of Sure Start. His work ad­dresses the cognitive, language and behavioural development of young children and the role of family factors, home environment, childcare and pre-school experience upon children’s development.
