Simply put, my past research has examined dis/engagement of U.S. ethnic minorities within a variety of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) contexts. Having degrees in science, engineering and history of science, I currently am both a practitioner and STS researcher managing and researching sociocultural and community complexities associated with engaging and recruiting underrepresented groups, especially Hispanics, Chicanas/os or Latinas/os, in the burgeoning interdisciplinary field of Big Data within the context of a network of schools, many being Hispanic Serving Institutions, and a NASA Federally Funded Research and Development Center.
