Roxanne Hughes

Director, Center for Integrating Research and Learning at the Florida State University-headquartered National High Magnetic Field Laboratory

Hughes studies STEM identity (one’s belief that they fit the perception of a scientist and can be successful in their chosen field) of women and people of color who have historically been marginalized in STEM fields. She uses an intersectional lens to study STEM identity both during a short term program (such as a summer camp) and over years of experiences. She mainly employs qualitative methods in her studies.
