Claire E. Cameron is a writer and educational psychologist. Her academic scholarship examines how children learn and develop. Her fiction and non-fiction further explores how we change throughout life by revealing individual stories of transformation. She strives to find ways to make scientific knowledge more accessible through non-technical forms of communication, including narrative.
In 2007, Claire earned a PhD from the University of Michigan’s Combined Program in Education and Psychology. She moved to Charlottesville, VA, to complete a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Virginia’s Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning (CASTL), where she is currently employed as a Research Scientist. Her scientific research addresses how children learn to control their behavior and how adults can help them. She’s best known for her work to develop the Head-Toes-Knees-Shoulders (HTKS), a game-like assessment for children which has been translated into over ten languages.
