Doctoral Student

Valeria M. Rigobon is a Ph.D. student in the developmental psychology doctoral program at FSU, with an interdisciplinary research focus in reading and spelling development among bilingual students, including those who may be at risk for reading difficulties. She is interested in exploring the word-level features (e.g., a word's shared roots between Spanish and English) and person-level features (e.g., a person's languages of proficiency, general reading ability) that contribute to a student's spelling success and acquisition of other important literacy skills. Her research and studies are supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD) for mentees in the field of developmental research and the Florida Education Fund's McKnight Pre-Doctoral Fellowship for students of underrepresented backgrounds pursuing higher education in Florida.
