Alvaro Granados is an undergraduate at the University of Pittsburgh, who is majoring in neuroscience and minoring in applied mathematics. His passion for studying the human brain led him to join an internship at Carnegie Mellon University, where he researches the ways that children learn math in middle school and how virtual agents, which are autonomous computer programs that tutor students, can help these children. This internship culminated in acceptance to the CREU (Computational Research Experiences for Undergraduates) program, which motivated the creation of this blog to share his knowledge and insights in learning sciences with the world.
