Lindsay Clements, an applied psychologist, conducts research on early mathematics and executive function skill growth, including how young children's mathematical conversations with adults and peers can support early STEM interests, ideas, and language. She brings extensive experience in mixed-method research design, as well as expertise in curriculum writing and universal design for learning.
Clements deepens understanding of how playful math games and technologies can enhance children’s learning in the classroom and at home. Currently, she is advancing the goals of several EDC initiatives, including Young Mathematicians and a new study focused on fostering preschoolers’ spatial orientation skills.
A reviewer for the Journal of Applied Developmental Psychology and blogger for Learning & The Brain, Clements has taught courses in the psychology of learning and neurodevelopment at Boston College and the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Before joining EDC, she was a research affiliate for the Development and Research in Early Math Education research network for five years.
Clements holds a PhD in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology from Boston College and an EdM from Harvard University.
