Doctoral student in Developmental Psychology


Karina is a doctoral student in the Developmental Psychology and Institute of Education Sciences (IES) Fellowship programs working with Susan Levine.  She graduated from the University of Chicago in 2021 with a B.S. in Mathematics and a B.A. in Psychology.  


Karina’s interests center around the intersection of mathematics, student learning processes, and instructional strategies. Through focused examinations of crucial early mathematics concepts including fractions and probability, combined with contextualization of the learning environment, she hopes to form a deeper understanding of mathematical development and apply findings to inform practical, equitable, and effective educational practices.
