Heather has happily crossed the street to join us after completing her PhD in Psychology at Columbia University. Her research in Psychology focused on the perception and memory of time, or in other words, how we learn about time from our environment and how we remember and use those representations. She also developed an interest in pedagogical support in higher education especially pertaining to the development of empirical thinking in the STEM and social science fields and nurtured this interest by conducting and coordinating a series of workshops for Columbia University’s GSAS Teaching Center. As an undergraduate student she worked on a project revitalizing a Native American language (Mutsun) with no living speakers using primary source materials and completed her degree in Linguistics minoring in Mathematics. She’s extremely excited to use her experience analyzing data to help students at Barnard develop hands-on critical thinking skills about datasets in the Empirical Reasoning Lab and as the Data Librarian.
