Post-Doctorate Research Team
Jenny Yun-Chen CHAN
Jenny's research examines the mechanisms and the cognitive processes involved in mathematical development. The first line of her work focuses on the effects of perceptual and contextual features in the environment on learning mathematics. The second line of her work investigates the influences of language and executive function skills on mathematical thinking and development. Through her research, she aims to contribute to the efforts in delineating the developmental pathways to mathematical thinking, and inform practices to better support learning and development.
In Fall 2022, Jenny will be moving to The Education University of Hong Kong!
Ji-Eun is a Post-Doctoral fellow of Learning Sciences & Technologies at WPI. Her research interests are largely directed towards applying learning analytics and educational data mining techniques to improve instructional design and student success in mathematics education. She examines data models to produce algorithms that identify student behaviors and mathematical strategies that predict learning outcomes and engagement in FH2T. She received her Ph.D. in Instructional Technology and Learning Sciences from Utah State University.

Allison's research investigates individual and task factors that influence STEM learning across the lifespan, with the goal of informing effective learning practices and interventions. Her work focuses on the cognitive and motivational factors that influence learning and engagement, and the learner characteristics and task features that influence how people interact with learning environments. She received her PhD in Cognitive Psychology with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh.
