Erin R. Ottmar, Ph.D.


I am an Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences and Technology and Psychology at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. My research and teaching focuses on the intersections of educational, cognitive, and developmental psychology and aims to better understand how cognitive and non-cognitive pathways improve mathematics teaching and learning. I teach classes and mentor students in the Learning Sciences and Technology graduate program and the undergraduate psychology program in the Social Science and Policy Studies Department.
