Dr Rebecca Georgis, University of Alberta
Postdoctoral Fellow September - December 2017
Rebecca obtained her PhD in Educational Psychology from the University of Alberta. She then worked as a postdoctoral fellow with the Community-University Partnership, University of Alberta, where she co-developed, with community partners, a conceptual model for reflective intercultural practice in early childhood. Her research interests are in acculturation, intergroup/intercultural relationships, and culture as a determinant of child development.
At IASH, I will be researching intergroup relationships in early childhood and attempt to integrate educational, psychological, and neuroscience perspectives of social development in young children.
