His research focuses on how children and adults learn and think about numbers and math. He is particularly interested in how mathematical learning changes over time, how learning can be improved, and the various strategies children and adults use when thinking about numbers and math. Right now, his research focuses on whether improving knowledge of one fraction concept reduces other common fraction errors. He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of North Florida in Jacksonville Florida. In his spare time, Charlie enjoys watching live music, reading fiction books, and spending time with family, friends, and his dog, Chelsea.

Charlie works in the Cognitive Development Lab at Kent State University. The lab generally studies numerical cognition, with a focus on how children learn about, remember, and transfer their conceptual knowledge of numbers.
