Gil Eyal and Madi Whitman

The Center for Science is pleased to announce that Madi Whitman (Postdoctoral Research Scholar and Assistant Director of Co-teaching) and Gil Eyal (Professor of Sociology) have been awarded funds from the National Science Foundation for their study "Student Data in the Post-Pandemic University." 

The project is a qualitative study of how data shape and are shaped by students. It will focus on how undergraduate students understand and react to data collection. The study will address how social differences affect students' interactions with data technologies. The study's findings will inform policy recommendations to counter disparate and unequal effects of data collection and use. 

Congratulations to Gil and Madi!
