Bio

She received her PhD in Psychology from University College London and had 4 years’ postdoctoral training at Washington University in St. Louis. The goal of her research is to help students make the most of their academic experience. Yana’s research interests lie in improving the accuracy of memory performance and the judgments students make about their cognitive functions. Yana poses questions with direct applied relevance: How can we help students choose optimal study strategies? Why are test scores sometimes surprising to students? And how does retrieval practice help students learn? She blogs about learning science and its application to instruction at the Learning Scientists blog.
