Catherine Haden, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology
Catherine Haden received her Ph.D. from Emory University in 1995 and was a post-doctoral fellow at the Center for Developmental Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from 1995 to 1997. She has been on the faculty in the Department of Psychology at Loyola University Chicago since 1997.
Her research focuses on the development of memory, and the role of parent-child conversational interactions in family learning and remembering. Recent work considers how parent-child conversations during hands-on activities in museums impact children's interest and understanding of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). She is especially interested in identifying ways that parents and other educators can support children's cognitive development.
