Grace Lin, PhD.
Grace joined the SNAP lab as a postdoctoral fellow in the summer of 2019. She researches how language and executive function affect other areas of cognition (e.g., math) in young children as well as how cognitive training games can be implemented to help people across the lifespan learn. An indispensable part of this research is the investigation of the psychometric properties of the researcher-developed measures. Another area of her focus is building the bridge between researchers and community partners with outreach activities to schools and libraries. At the SNAP lab, Grace is part of the team developing an online measures repository. She also works as part of the FOI measurement and evaluation team and provides technical assistance to our FOI partners. Grace received her Ph.D. in Education from the University of California, Irvine, with specializations in Learning, Cognition, Teaching, and Development as well as Language, Literacy, and Technology (2018). She also holds an Ed.M. in Mind, Brain, and Education from Harvard University Graduate School of Education (2011).
