Dr. Zhe Wang is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology (Developmental Sciences Program). Dr. Wang’s research aims to better understand the nature and development of variation in school adjustment, to generate knowledge on the risk and resilient processes in academic learning, and to translate this knowledge into practices in promoting positive educational outcomes. Dr. Wang’s current program of research investigates a) cognitive, emotional, motivational, and contextual factors that influence math learning and achievement, and (b) the developmental etiologies of emotions and motivations in math learning in elementary and middle school students. Dr. Wang conducts experiments in the lab setting, incorporating neurocognitive assessment, psychophysiological measures, and eye-tracking techniques to understand the transactions between emotions and cognitions in math learning and problem solving. She also uses surveys and observations in longitudinal and behavioral genetic designs along with advanced statistical modeling to explore the complex biosocial mechanisms underlying math achievement development.
