Carly Robinson is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Annenberg Institute at Brown University. Her research interests sit at the intersection of education, psychology, and policy. In particular, she draws on insights from social psychology and behavioral science to design and experimentally test interventions that improve social support for students. Some of her recent work focuses on strengthening teacher-student relationships and mobilizing effective family engagement. As a complement to her applied research, her methodological work emphasizes open science practices, such as preregistering hypothesis-testing studies.
Prior to conducting educational research, Carly worked as a New York City teacher. She holds a PhD in Education from Harvard University, a Master’s in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, and BA in Psychology from Williams College.
