Megan Powell Cuzzolino is a doctoral student studying human development at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her research focuses on how children and adults develop epistemological understandings of science and its relationship to religion and other ways of knowing, as well as the implications of these understandings for formal and informal science education. She belongs to the Causal Cognition in a Complex World research team under the direction of Professor Tina Grotzer at Harvard’s Project Zero.

Previously, Megan was a science teacher at an independent K-8 school in the DC area, where the fascinating questions from her inquisitive young students served as the inspiration for her present research focus. She also spent a year as a Science Education Analyst at the National Science Foundation. Megan holds an A.B. from Harvard University and an Ed.M. from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
