Stacy T. Shaw

Welcome to my website! I am an Assistant Professor in Learning Science & Technology and Psychological and Cognitive Science at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. My research focuses on teaching and learning in math and statistics, with a focus on creative thinking in mathematics. Recently, I have begun to study the role of rest in college student wellbeing.

I graduated from UCLA with my Ph.D. in Psychology where I worked with Gerardo Ramirez and Jim Stigler. I am an NSF GRFP recipient, an Ambassador for the Center for Open Science, Catalyst for the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences, and past President of Psychology In Action. I am also a part of the Better Book research team for the Coursekata project. 

*I am not accepting graduate students for the 2024-2025 year (I also do not have the capacity to respond to emails from prospective students with interests outside my area of research).
