Research

Research by Maartje Raijmakers concerns development of learning with applications in science education. The existence of different learning processes (e.g., rational and associative learning) implies individual differences between and within individuals. With mathematical models we study heterogeneity and important related factors such as curiosity and executive functions, in a developmental context.
