Lauren S. Aulet is a Presidential Postdoctoral Fellow at Carnegie Mellon University with Drs. Jessica Cantlon and Brad Mahon, where she leverages behavioral, neural, and developmental methods to understand how humans represent numerical concepts. She received her PhD in Psychology (Cognition & Development) from Emory University, in Dr. Stella Lourenco's Spatial Cognition lab. She also collaborated with the labs of Dr. Daniel Dilks and Dr. Gregory Berns to understand the neural mechanisms underlying number perception in humans and dogs, respectively.

My current research investigates the developmental and evolutionary history of relational reasoning and semantics, and the underlying mechanism that facilitates both processes.

Marie Amalric

Dr. Marie Amalric

Postdoctoral Researcher, Psychology

I am a visiting post-doctoral fellow at Carnegie Mellon University, working in Kid Neuro Lab.

During my PhD thesis, under the supervision of Stanislas Dehaene, I have tried to understand how the human brain represents and manipulates abstract mathematical concepts.

My work currently focuses on the learning processes involved in the acquisition of mathematics. I am addressing this issue with both behavioral and fMRI studies. 

I work with adults and children in France and in the USA, and with a people from the Amazon, the Mundurucus.

Dr. Shipra Kanjlia

Postdoctoral Researcher, Psychology

I am a postdoctoral researcher working with Jessica Cantlon. I am interested in the development of the neural basis of cognitive functions, such as numerical processing, and how this development is shaped by experience. I completed my PhD at Johns Hopkins University under the supervision of Marina Bedny. In my graduate work I studied how the neural basis of numerical thinking is modified by the absence of visual experience in blindness.

I study the cognitive algorithms involved in abstract thought across domains like language, mathematics, and logic. I use behavioral and computational methods to tackle these issues. My long-term interests are at the intersection of the brain sciences, philosophy, and education.
