Dr. Riegle-Crumb’s research interests center upon gender and racial/ethnic inequality in educational experiences and achievement. She is particularly interested in the role of social contexts, including friendships, schools, and communities, in increasing or ameliorating educational disparities. Dr. Riegle-Crumb is currently Co-Principal Investigator on a multi-year National Science Foundation grant to study how various dimensions of academic preparation in high school predict students’ entry into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors in college, with particular attention to the trajectories and unique experiences of African American and Latino students in STEM fields. Her research also focuses on the complex intersection between gender and race/ethnicity with regard to educational inequality. More recently, Dr. Riegle-Crumb has begun examining the role of teachers in influencing students’ science-related identities, both at the elementary and secondary levels.
