Associate professor receives NAGC Early Scholar Award
Sakhavat Mammadov, an associate professor in the Department of Educational Psychology, received the 2023 Early Scholar Award from the National Association for Gifted Children (NAGC).
The award recognizes scholars who have made significant research contributions into gifted and talented education within 10 years of earning their doctoral degree.
Mammadov joined the Mary Frances Early College of Education in 2022. His research interests include social and emotional experiences of children with gifts and talents and the role of individual difference and contextual factors on student well-being and learning.
“This award serves as a meaningful validation of my work as a gifted education scholar and reflects the NAGC’s commitment to advancing the field. I am grateful for the support of the University of Georgia, which has played an important role in my research endeavors,” he said.
“I look forward to continuing to collaborate with colleagues and students to further our shared mission of supporting all students, including those with gifts and talents.”
Mammadov will accept the award at the NAGC Annual Convention in November.
