Visiting Scholars Fall 2016

Tamarie Macon, Ph.D.,  Assistant Professor of Applied Psychology/Faculty Fellow at New York University

Tamarie Macon earned a Ph.D. in Education and Psychology from the University of Michigan in August 2015. She obtained a master's degree in psychology at the University of Michigan and a bachelor's degree in public health with a minor in English from Rutgers University. Tamarie's research interests focus on parenting (particularly by fathers) and young children's development of social-emotional competence. Her publications include an examination of the ways that parents socialize adaptive coping of their children, specifically in the context of school-based discrimination (Richardson, Macon, Mustafaa, Bogan, Cole-Lewis, & Chavous, 2014). Her earlier work in public health concerned the experiences of families with children with special health care needs regarding their insurance coverage (Macon, Miller, Gaboda, Simpson, & Cantor, 2007; Miller, Macon, Gaboda, & Cantor, 2011). Tamarie is a two-time recipient of fellowships from the Ford Foundation for predoctoral work (2011-2014) and dissertation research (2014-2015). She also is a Rackham Merit Fellow at the University of Michigan (2010-2015). In 2014, she was selected to serve as a teaching consultant at the University's renowned Center for Research on Learning and Teaching. Tamarie worked for three years as a legislative aide in the United States Senate before beginning her doctoral studies and was a Rhodes Scholar finalist in 2007.  View Dr. Macon's faculty profile.

Antje Von Suchodoletz, Ph.D.,  Assistant Professor of Applied Psychology (NYU Abu Dhabi)

Antje's research is broadly focused on optimizing children's development. In her research, she emphasizes the interactional and contextual nature of learning and development. Her current work focuses on helping schools develop their readiness to implement effective teaching strategies and to improve young children's learning-related skills (including self-regulation and social competence). She is also interested in physiological and biological foundations of self-regulation and how classroom processes and teacher-child-relationships relate to these processes. Antje has taught at the Universities of Munich, Freiburg, and Lüneburg. She also worked as a school psychologist for several years in Switzerland.
