What We Do 


Our research centers on the question:  how can we (re)create educational practices in STEM to better support students and instructors? 


We aim to conduct rigorous research that provides the evidence STEM instructors, departments, and universities need to advocate for and implement change. We use social science research methods combined with biology and STEM perspectives to address our research questions.


Current projects in the lab focus on characterizing the experiences of STEM students with disabilities and exploring how students and instructors can approach teaching and research mentoring to foster students’ own agency.


We are looking for researchers to join our group! Undergraduate, graduate, and postdoc researchers are invited to contact Mariel to learn more about projects in the lab.
