I recently completed my Ph.D. in the Educational Psychology program at the Graduate Center, CUNY, specializing in Learning, Development, and Instruction. In the process of completing my doctoral education, I also completed a certificate in Instructional Technology and Pedagogy. Prior to studying at the Graduate Center, I received a B.A. in Psychology from Cornell University and an M.A. in Cognitive Studies in Education from Teachers College, Columbia University. Since completing my doctorate, I am now a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Notre Dame working in the Learning Analytics and Measurement in Behavioral Sciences (LAMBS) Lab. I currently contribute to a project studying factors that influence high school students’ achievement in statistics courses.
In addition to my past research on executive functions and academic skills, particularly literacy, I have also been deeply interested in research that examines the effects of digital interventions on the development of executive functions. I have had the opportunity to work studies of game-based cognitive interventions with members of the ChILD Lab at the Graduate Center and the CREATE Lab of New York University. Some of this work has appeared in Mind, Brain, & Education, Computers & Education, Learning & Instruction, and Cognitive Development. Through this line of work, I have developed an interest in studying the impact of engagement within the context of these games.
