Kaitlyn E. May
Doctoral Student in Educational Psychology, Educational Neuroscience Concentration
I am a fifth year PhD candidate in the Educational Psychology and Educational Neuroscience program at the University of Alabama. My research focuses primarily on the role of executive functions in social contexts, like language.
I am also interested in making science more accessible and understandable to diverse audiences, as seen in my work creating science animations and developing STEM Studio, a research project which engages groups typically underrepresented in STEM by teaching science through dance. I also published a children's book, "The Spectacular Duet of Miss Anna Odette", to empower kids to see the STEM in the things in their world, like dance
Prior to coming to UA, I received a bachelors of science in Educational Psychology with a minor in Spanish Language from Mississippi State University. I also studied pediatric neurolinguistics as a Visiting Scholar at the University of Oxford under Dr. Anna Scarna.
