Speaking up in STEM: Investigating the self-advocacy and classroom experiences of undergraduates with ADHD and specific learning disorders


Location, Date & Time:

Zoom Meeting - October 06, 2022, 4:00 PM Eastern Time (US and Canada)


Open to Faculty, Staff, Students and the Public


About the Speaker:

Dr. Mariel Pfeifer is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Georgia. She earned her Ph.D. in Plant Biology at the University of Georgia where she received an NSF Graduate Research Fellowship and an ARCS Foundation award. As part of her dissertation, she conducted both bench and education research. Her education research focused on the self-advocacy experiences of STEM undergraduates with ADHD and specific learning disabilities. Prior to starting graduate school, Mariel worked as a disability services coordinator. It was in this role that she first became interested in self-advocacy. Now, she investigates science identity in research trainees and plans to continue to study self-advocacy in STEM undergraduates.
