University of Chicago

Sarah Eason is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Psychology at the University of Chicago, and works on both the Parent and Early Caregiver Engagement and the Making More of Math projects. She graduated from the University of Maryland with a PhD in human development, and previously earned a master’s degree in clinical psychology from Loyola University Maryland. Sarah is interested in how social contexts relate to children’s cognitive development, with an emphasis on how experiences in the home environment and interactions with parents contribute to children’s early math learning. Her research focuses on what types of experiences and interactions in the home are most conducive to increasing children’s math knowledge, and how this might vary depending on individual characteristics and sociocultural factors. An additional line of research examines the relations between executive function and children’s current math skills as well as their capacity for learning from math activities.
