grad_karinaKarina Hamamouche

Karina graduated from Butler University with a
BA in Psychology and French in 2014. She is primarily interested in children and adult’s perception of time and number. In particular, Karina uses emotion as a tool to explore the similarities and differences in people’s ability to process time and number. Her work explores the effect of emotion on temporal and numerical estimation, discrimination, and counting. In addition, Karina is interested in exploring how temporal and numerical estimation relate to later math achievement.
