Eve is a third-year graduate student in the Department of Sociology and a research assistant with the Center for Research Educational Opportunity (CREO). She joined the Department after receiving her MA in Sociology from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte in 2014. Her MA thesis was an analysis of 46 interviews with multiracial college students about their identity choices and majoring in a STEM field. She earned her BA in Politics and International Studies with a minor in Race and Culture from Middlesex University (U.K.) in 2005 and an MSc in Global Politics from Birkbeck, University of London (U.K.) in 2006. Eve’s current work focuses on the underrepresentation of women and minorities in STEM college majors, and on expressions of colour-blind ideology and belief in meritocracy among STEM and non-STEM college majors. Eve is also currently preparing for her area exams.
