Robby Quintana is a second year PhD student in the Human Development Area of Educational Psychology.

Robby graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College where he earned a B.A. in Psychology. After graduation, Robert worked at an alternative school, where he served as a teaching assistant in a classroom for children with emotional/behavior difficulties. He also worked a Behavioral Technician at Wisconsin’s Early Autism Program and as a math tutor for Schools of Hope in the MMSD school district.

Robby is interested in the relationship between spatial ability and mathematics. He hopes this research will contribute towards interventions that may help at-risk children succeed in their formal mathematics. In his downtime, he likes to spend his time managing his clothing business, identifying vegetation and wildlife, and watching and playing sports.
