Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

PhD Candidate, Social Psychology

My current research with Associate Professor Mindi Foster assesses the consequences of confronting sexism in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Further, I test various experimental interventions to buffer women in STEM from the perceived and directed social costs of confrontation. My research is inspired by the work I do as Student Research Coordinator of the Laurier Centre for Women in Science (WinS) – a research centre that supports and facilitates research by women and about women in science and mathematical social sciences.

Turning my research into a photo series (#DistractinglySexist: Confronting Sexism in Canada’s Tech Triangle) was quite unexpected, but has now reached people in the local community, New York, Los Angeles, and Texas.
