The research in our lab, which sits at the intersection of cognitive psychology, developmental psychology, and education, focuses on the cognitive and emotional factors that influence math learning and the impact of parents and teachers on children’s learning. Much of our work focuses on the role of math anxiety in math performance. In addition to answering basic questions about numerical and mathematical representation and learning, we use our research to inform educational practice and policy.
