Dania is a doctoral student and Institute of Education Sciences (IES) fellow in the Developmental Psychology program working with Susan Levine. She graduated from the University of California, Berkeley with a B.A in Psychology and a minor in Education. Prior to graduate school, Dania worked as a research assistant in the Cognitive Development Lab at the University of Chicago.
Dania’s research explores mathematical learning through a developmental lens. Specifically, she is interested in investigating the impact that different socio-emotional, cognitive, and linguistic factors have on children’s mathematical understanding. Through her research, Dania hopes to be able to inform evidence-based interventions that work to close the achievement gap in mathematics.
