Undergraduates Present at International Conference

This month, undergraduate students Sonia Doshi and Amara Rangwala attended the Science & Technology Indicators conference in Granada, Spain. The pair presented on work they did with Cassidy Sugimoto. Their paper was titled “Applying an Intersectional Lens to Author Composition at Women’s Colleges, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, and Hispanic Serving Institutions in the United States.” The presentation marked the first international conference for both students. The Center for the Study of Women, Science, and Technology funded the work.
