Brown Bag Lecture Series

Missy Cosby is a postdoctoral researcher currently working in Physics Education at Michigan State University. Though she is under the Physics Education umbrella at the moment, her work continues to closely explore the experiences of Black women in mathematics and STEM, more broadly.

Maisie L. Gholson is an assistant professor of educational studies at the University of Michigan. Within a Black feminist framework, her research seeks to understand Black children's identity development, particularly, in mathematics.

Nicole M. Joseph is an assistant professor of mathematics education in the department of Teaching and Learning at Vanderbilt University. Her research explores (a) Black women and girls, their identity development, and their experiences in mathematics (b) gendered antiblackness, White Supremacy and how they operate and shape underrepresentation and retention of Black women and girls in mathematics.
