Case Study: Ana

My name is Ana, and I am a Hispanic woman in a STEM field. I was born in El Paso, TX but raised in Cd. Juarez, Mexico. I graduated from the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) with a bachelor’s degree in biochemistry and a master’s degree in chemistry. I started my Ph.D. in environmental engineering in August 2016 at Arizona State University (ASU) and joined Dr. François Perreault’s research group. Our research focuses on the application of nanotechnology for water treatment.

Case Study: Beatriz

I identify as Hispanic/Latinx. For me it has been very hard to find my place and identity within STEM research fields, as there isn't always a lot of support for underrepresented groups. It can be hard to get a research position in STEM/engineering for Hispanic/Latinx students. I think there needs to be more support from professors, head researchers, and departments to make sure there are opportunities for people from all backgrounds. I have generally had to go outside of my department to find opportunities for myself.
