Sara Cordes, Ph.D., Professor, Boston College

Dr. Cordes is a Professor of Psychology and Neuroscience at Boston College and Principal Investigator of the Infant and Child Cognition Laboratory. Research in her lab centers on understanding how infants, children, and adults keep track of basic quantities (ie., time, number, and amount), how these quantity representations may be impacted by social, linguistic, or contextual factors, and how these preverbal representations relate to later mathematics achievement.

Dr. Cordes received her Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology from Rutgers University, New Brunswick in 2005 and then received a post-doctoral fellowship to study infant and child cognition at Duke University. Dr. Cordes is a recipient of an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship and an NSF CAREER award.
