Eliza is doctoral student in the Department of Psychology. Eliza's research interests include studying individual differences in mathematical strategies in elementary school children and how those strategies interact with various training interventions, gesture as a learning tool, and early number learning through parental agency. She plans to be involved in translating laboratory findings into classroom teaching strategies. She received her undergraduate degree from Brown University. Prior to coming to the University of Chicago, Eliza was a research assistant at the Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience at Children's Hospital where she studied the effects of early iron deficiency on the neural correlates of recognition memory in school-aged children from Chile and the development of face processing in infants and young children.
