Lynneth Solis is a doctoral student in Human Development and Education, a graduate of the Mind, Brain, and Education Masters program, and a researcher in the Causal Cognition in a Complex World Lab at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research involves the study of conceptual development and the cognitive processes that lead children to evermore-complex conceptions of the world. She is particularly interested in the role of sociocultural and pedagogical factors in supporting young children’s learning in both formal and informal settings. Her current work investigates young children’s exploration of scientific phenomena through object play in cross-cultural settings and the unique play experiences of children growing up in indigenous contexts in Latin America.
