Dr. Ng Ee Lynn is Senior Education Research Scientist at the Center for Research in Child Development at the Office of Education Research, NIE. She received her Ph.D. from Nanyang Technological University in 2013. Her research interests are centred around learning and development in early and middle childhood. Specifically, her work focuses on understanding how factors that are internal and external to the child contribute to learning and development. She utilizes both experimental and correlational paradigms and has extensive experience conducting longitudinal research studies.
Dr. Ng has published research on the contribution of self-regulation skills on children's learning outcomes and the role of contextual (e.g., socio-economic status) and individual difference (e.g., fine motor skills, test anxiety) factors. She is also interested in the roles of teacher well-being and preschool quality on children's learning outcomes.
