    LARA PEREZ-FELKNER, PhD, is an assistant professor of Higher Education and Sociology in the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Florida State University.

In particular, she investigates racial–ethnic, gender, and socioeconomic disparities in post-secondary educational attainment and entry to scientific career fields. Presently, she is a co-Investigator on National Science Foundation grant #1232139, examining gendered differences in U.S. university students’ persistence in engineering and computer science majors.
