Welcome Pilvi Peura – Our Visiting Scholar!


This year, we have visiting scholar Pilvi Peura, joining our lab.  Pilvi is a doctoral student in Special Educatio2016-02-15 15.50.57 n from Finland. Pilvi made the decision to join the lab because we are currently one of the few research labs studying self-efficacy in primary schools, which is her main interest. She gained interest in the lab when her adviser expressed the thought that Dr. Usher would be a good collaborator for research.

After completing her graduate program, Pilvi hopes to continue doing research and working as a special education teacher. She enjoys working with children who have low self-efficacy for reading and math. Pilvi says that her favorite things about Lexington so far are the P20 lab and the university.  2016-02-07 12.29.29

Outside of the lab Pilvi enjoys yoga, playing sports, cooking, listening to music and going to concerts.

I hope you will join us in welcoming Pilvi to our lab for the 2016 Spring semester!
