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. 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.


In 2021, I will launch the Creativity, Education, Affect, and Reasoning (CEDAR) Lab at WPI.
