2017 - Troland Research Awards, United States National Academy of Sciences For her fundamental contributions to our understanding of human skill learning and performance breakdowns in high-pressure and anxiety-provoking situations.
2015 - Fellow of the American Psychological Association (APA)
2010 - Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS)
Her primary areas of investigation include Cognitive psychology, Developmental psychology, Social psychology, Working memory and Short-term memory. Sian L. Beilock has included themes like Attentional control and Perceptual-motor processes in her Cognitive psychology study. Her Developmental psychology research incorporates themes from Mathematical anxiety and Spatial ability.
The various areas that she examines in her Social psychology study include Athletes and Applied psychology. Her Working memory study incorporates themes from Stereotype threat, Experimental psychology, Cognitive style and Artificial intelligence. Her Short-term memory study combines topics in areas such as Academic skills and Machine learning.
Her primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Mathematical anxiety, Working memory, Developmental psychology and Social psychology. Her Cognitive psychology research incorporates elements of Attentional control, Cognitive science and Embodied cognition. Her work in Mathematical anxiety covers topics such as Feeling which are related to areas like Test.
Her Short-term memory study, which is part of a larger body of work in Working memory, is frequently linked to Choking and Color constancy, bridging the gap between disciplines. In the subject of general Developmental psychology, her work in Mathematical ability is often linked to Relation, thereby combining diverse domains of study. Her research integrates issues of Motor skill and Applied psychology in her study of Social psychology.
Sian L. Beilock mainly investigates Mathematical anxiety, Cognitive psychology, Mathematics education, Feeling and Test. Her Mathematical anxiety study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Math problem, Apprehension, Manifest Anxiety Scale, Developmental psychology and Mathematics anxiety. Her Developmental psychology research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Working memory, Negatively associated, Affect and Elementary cognitive task.
Her work deals with themes such as Attentional control, Eriksen flanker task and Hurst exponent, which intersect with Working memory. Her Cognitive psychology research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Brain network, Brain activity and meditation and Effects of sleep deprivation on cognitive performance. The study incorporates disciplines such as Likert scale and Rating scale in addition to Test.
Her main research concerns Mathematical anxiety, Mathematics anxiety, Academic achievement, Developmental psychology and Socioeconomic status. The concepts of her Mathematical anxiety study are interwoven with issues in Working memory and Math problem. Her Mathematics anxiety research includes themes of Social psychology and Mathematics instruction.
Her Developmental psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Cognitive load and Apprehension. Her research in Achievement test intersects with topics in Likert scale and Teaching method. Her research integrates issues of Pedagogy and Competence in her study of Mathematics education.
