Visiting Undergraduate Researcher, Swarthmore College
Sarah Dobbs is studying the role secondary and post-secondary education plays in the socialization of science as a gendered discipline. She is particularly interested in the opportunities education provides to intercept the gendered socialization and structures in science and what resistance and replacement would look like to bring more equity to the field. She enjoys the investigative, creative aspect of qualitative research. She is a rising senior at Swarthmore College in PA where she studies Education and Sociology and will achieve her secondary social studies teaching certification in Fall 2017. When not working, Sarah can be found running or body surfing. She is a varsity cross country and track runner at Swarthmore and has been running competitively since age 12. She also loves the ocean and spends her free days in LA riding waves.
