I am interested in humanistic and interdisciplinary approaches to studying science. Areas of interest include interdisciplinary pedagogy, cultural studies of science, technology and society, gender and science, ethnicity and science, and epistemologies of science. My doctoral dissertation theorized ways that the humanities and sciences might interact to create new directions in socially engaged, transdisciplinary research and teaching practices. At MSU, I work in Curriculum Development for IAH, and I would be interested in developing general education courses that help students bridge scientific and humanistic ways of knowing. I would also be interested in contributing to research projects that engage with humanistic approaches to science, that study interdisciplinarity or transdisciplinarity, that consider how science education might interact with humanities education (science in the humanities classroom and/or humanistic or ethical subject matter in science education), or that draw on the work of theorists such as Haraway, Barad, Latour, Bowker and Starr, or other STS and humanistic approaches to science.

What do our Faculty Affiliations Mean?

Core Faculty have a strong continuing professional focus on issues of women and gender in domestic, international, or global contexts, as demonstrated through research and teaching or other achievements. The Core Faculty supports the activities of GenCen and assists in developing and implementing its programs and activities, and are also eligible to serve on the GenCen Advisory Committee.

Consulting Faculty, while having a professional interest in issues of women and gender in domestic, international, or global contexts and activities of the GenCen, usually do not have these interests as the main focus of their research. 

GDG (Gender, Development and Globalization) Faculty will also be either Core or Consulting Faculty and have specific expertise and interest in gender and international development.

GJEC (Gender, Justice and Environmental Change) Faculty may also be either Core or Consulting Faculty, though that is not a requirement. GJEC Faculty are dedicated to teaching and scholarship related to intersections of gender, environmental change, and social and environmental justice; examining these issues from both local and global perspectives.
