I'm Yiqiao Wang, currently a PhD student in Developmental Psychology at Harvard University. Previously, I worked as a lab manager at Temple Cognition & Learning Lab. Not so long ago, I graduated from UC San Diego with bachelors in Developmental Psychology and Economics in 2018, where I was luckily advised by Dr. David Barner on children's acquisition of number words.
