Kaitlyn E. May, PhD
Educational Psychology, Educational Neuroscience Concentration
I have a PhD in Educational Psychology and Educational Neuroscience from 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.
