Alison Shell - Digital Promise

Alison Shell

“I learn from everyone around me! I am surrounded by smart friends, family, and colleagues who each have their own unique skill set. It’s incredible what you can learn just by asking questions and listening.”

Alison is currently finishing her Ph.D. in Cognitive Psychology at the University of Maryland with a focus in language and cognition. Prior to moving to D.C., she was involved in a few research projects in the Boston area, including investigating the biological underpinnings of autism at the Shriver Center and working to develop more linguistically-sound reading assessments for young-adult readers at Boston University. Alison received her M.S. in psychology from the University of Maryland and her B.A. in cognitive science from Vassar College. You can reach Alison at:
