Marianna Lamnina

Marianna Lamnina is a doctoral student in Cognitive Studies in Education and a Ben and Grace Woods Research Fellow at the ILT. Before coming to TC, she conducted research at the Academic and Curriculum Enrichment Lab at CUNY. Her research interests include how instructional technology facilitates transfer and mastery in topics in the STEM fields, as well as what motivates students in STEM. Her dissertation work focuses on ways to motivate students in science by sparking their curiosity through invention activities. Marianna holds an M.A. in Cognitive Studies from Columbia University and a B.A. in Psychology from Macaulay Honors College.
