Tanya Evans (nee Gerner), B.S.
Tanya graduated with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from Lehigh University in 2003. She subsequently spent time as a research assistant in both industry (Akzo Nobel Inc.) and academic (University of Delaware) settings. As a tutor, she developed and implemented customized academic enrichment programs in mathematics and science at middle school to graduate school levels. Tanya entered the Interdisciplinary Program in Neuroscience at Georgetown University in 2007, and is currently working under the mentorship of Dr. Eden on thesis research exploring the developmental trajectory of neural substrates responsible for numerical representation. . Thesis research exploring: (1) the developmental trajectory of the neural correlates of reading and calculation and (2) the effects of language and sensory experience on visuospatial processing.
