This fall, we’ll have a new addition to the lab – Catalina joins us as a graduate student in the Personal Health Informatics PhD program. Here’s the bio that she wrote for us, which is also posted in the “People” section:
Catalina is finishing with a triple major: BS in Psychology, Computer Science and Cognitive Science from University of Richmond. During her time there she worked with Dr. David Landy on learning mathematical operations through visual cues and on an algebra teaching software that explores the role of space and physical manipulations of mathematical notations in understanding of and performance on algebra problems. Her honors thesis has been on spatial cognition and emotion recognition as a function of ASD. She has also had two summer internships working with children on the autism spectrum. She is looking forward to use technology to answer autism-related questions!
