Robby Quintana is a PhD student in the Human Development Area of Educational Psychology. Robby graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College where he earned a B.A. in Psychology. After graduation, Robby worked at an alternative school, where he served as a teaching assistant in a classroom for children with emotional/behavior difficulties. He also worked a Behavioral Technician at Wisconsin’s Early Autism Program and as a math tutor for Schools of Hope in the MMSD school district. Robby is interested in how the development of specific cognitive abilities influence intermediate and advanced mathematical competencies. He hopes this research will contribute towards interventions that may help at-risk children succeed in their formal mathematics.
