Carly Robinson is a doctoral candidate at the Harvard Graduate School of Education in the Human Development, Learning, and Teaching concentration. Her interests lie at the intersection of psychology, education, and policy. Currently, Carly is developing and testing interventions that target teachers’ and parents’ beliefs to improve student academic and motivational outcomes. These interventions shift teachers’ beliefs about their classroom practices to promote positive teacher-student relationships and parents’ beliefs about their role to help them more effectively engage in their children’s education. Additionally, her methodological work emphasizes open science practices, such as preregistering hypothesis-testing studies.

Prior to starting her doctoral program, Carly worked as a Research Fellow in the S3 Lab, managing and implementing randomized field experiments, and as a third grade teacher. She received her Master’s in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and her B.A. in Psychology from Williams College.
