Department: Disability Services/Women's & Gender Studies
Research Focus: I have a few primary areas of research:
1) All things related to student disability accommodations in higher education, but specifcally transitioning from high school to college
2) The intersections of feminism and disability
3) Feminism/WGS in the real world or what do you do with a WGS degree after graduation?
4) Feminism & women's history in Muncie & at BSU
Potential Student Project(s): I'm really open to any projects that might fit within my research interests! It could be a survey of students using accommodations at BSU or oral history conversations about what WGS students are doing after graduation. I'm really open to talking with potential student mentees about their interests to see if they align with mine.
Attributes/skills/background sought in undergraduate:
1. Good organization & time management skills
2. Ability to communicate well with potential research participants
3. Ability to meet with me regularly throughout the semester
Mentoring Plan: The student researcher will work 5 hours/week on the project including a 1-on-1 meeting with me each week. The other 4 hours of work can be done virtually and independent from me but we will make a plan each week of the tasks that need completed so the student has a to-do list of sorts to stay organized.
