Dr. Burte

Dr. Burte is a Research Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Texas A&M University.

My research program focuses on individual differences in spatial thinking and STEM learning within the following areas: developing and evaluating spatial thinking measures, elementary students learning math, sense-of-direction in navigation, and college students learning physics.

Previously, I worked as a Research Scientist at the Learning Innovation and Networked Knowledge (LINK) Research lab at the University of Texas at Arlington. Before that, I completed a post-doctoral scholarship in the Spatial Cognition Lab at Tufts University.

I completed my Ph.D. in the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and Masters in the Geography Department, both at the University of California-Santa Barbara. I got my start in spatial cognition while completing my Honors Thesis as part of my Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Alberta.
