In addition to this research collaboration, Danovitch will spend time with students and other faculty while at UA. Danovitch’s visit is her second of four that will take place during 2018 as part of the CHES Visiting Scholars Program.
Danovitch serves as the Director of Undergraduate Studies in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Louisville. She is one of the principal investigators in the university’s Knowledge in Development (KID) Lab. Her research interest centers on ways children seek out and evaluate knowledge throughout their development. Recent publications of hers have appeared in the Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, the British Journal of Developmental Psychology and Child Development. Danovitch earned an AB in psychology and biology from Harvard University and a PhD in psychology from Yale University.
The Visiting Scholars Program, supported by the CHES Leadership Board, pairs our faculty with outstanding scientists in their field. Scofield is enthusiastic about participating in the program, saying, “It’s great for College visibility. It’s great for the faculty member hosting the visiting scientist. And it’s great for producing important new science.”
All of which encourages growth in research at CHES and enables us to continue improving lives.
