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. Under the mentorship of Dr. Guinevere Eden her thesis research explored (1) the anatomical differences in females with dyslexia, (2) the neural substrates for the developmental trajectory of numerical representation and reading, and (3) the brain-basis of calculation in children with dyslexia. Tanya received her PhD in Neuroscience in May 2013 and began as a postdoctoral fellow at the Stanford Cognitive and Systems Neuroscience Laboratory, in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the Stanford University School of Medicine in June 2013. Under the mentorship of DR. Vinond Menon Tanya is continuing her work in numerical processing.
