Texas State’s Worldwide Impact

Systemic barriers and supports in STEM education and careers

“Women entering the field are historically underrepresented, as are many other minority populations. There are psychological and social barriers that make it difficult for women to remain in STEM fields. They often feel that they don’t belong because they don’t have the support they need. My job is to discover and implement interventions that mitigate these barriers.”

Breaking Bad Habits

“A lot of folks who use [drugs] do mature out of it, but a lot of folks don’t, and if you can catch the folks who aren’t going to, who are more likely to have problems, and set them on a better path, the impact that you could have is much larger than if you’re intervening when they’re 45.”
