Haley McNamara is the Research Associate for Student Experience Research Network (SERN). She earned a BS (Hons) in psychology from the University of California, Los Angeles, with her thesis exploring the intersection of psychology and learning in mathematics. Haley went on to graduate from a two-year fellowship in Improvement Science at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. While traditional research methods are necessary for understanding whether and how psychosocial interventions produce significant results, Improvement Science offers a framework for adapting interventions across myriad classroom contexts with reliability, at scale. Immediately prior to joining SERN, Haley served as a Research Coordinator for the Carnegie Math Pathways Networked Improvement Community (NIC) where she managed multiple mixed methods, classroom-based studies related to applied mindset science.
