School of Education
Elham received her B.S. in Cognitive Science with a concentration in Computing from University of California, Los Angeles in 2014. Throughout her undergraduate career, she collaborated with other students in conducting research in designing effective multimedia lessons and other interactive computer-based lessons for college students. After graduating from UCLA, Elham worked as a classroom observer for the Head Start Family and Child Experiences Survey (FACES). Observing the different teaching methods, as well as the student differences, Elham became more interested in conducting research in education.
Elham’s research interests include enhancing and individualizing education using both classroom instruction and technology by applying the science of learning as well as cognitive science principles.
Elham is currently a doctoral student in the University of California, Irvine’s School of Education with a concentration in Learning, Cognition, and Development (LCD). Elham is part of the Individualizing Student Instruction Lab, working under the supervision of Dr. Carol Connor.
