Postdoctoral Research Fellow
Erika is a postdoctoral research fellow working on two projects related to 1) characterizing (de)emphasized and (de)valued practices in engineering education and professional contexts and how these align with engineers’ personal values and 2) understanding the adoption and impacts of a toolkit aimed at providing students with the skills to identify and address socially engaged aspects of engineering work. She earned a B.A. in sociology and psychology from Case Western Reserve University and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Higher Education from the University of Michigan. Her research interests include cultural beliefs about what engineers do and who they are, students’ career thinking and trajectories, and ways to effectively facilitate more diverse, inclusive, and equitable engineering environments.
