Bio: Ilyse is currently in her fourth year of graduate studies. She received her B.S. in psychology from Lebanon Valley College. Ilyse is a member of the Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center, and her advisor is Thomas F. Shipley. Her research interests include mental transformations, understanding large amounts of time, scaling, and how geologists use these skills. Further, Ilyse is interested in differences between expert geologists and novices, and specifically how the development of such expertise may be facilitated.
