Dr. Melissa Libertus' research interests center around the question of how children learn math and why some children struggle with it more than others. She is particularly interested in foundational number skills such as children’s ability to approximate numbers and how these foundations help children acquire mathematical abilities. She uses behavioral methods, eye tracking, and neuroscience techniques (EEG/ERP, fMRI) to study these questions.
