Dr. Szelényi’s research examines (1) science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education at the undergraduate and graduate levels, (2) academic capitalism, and (3) globalization and internationalization in higher education. In 2007, her dissertation was cited for excellence by the Association for the Study of Higher Education.
Prior to joining UMass Boston, Dr. Szelényi was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the University of Maryland, College Park, where her work focused on the National Study of Living Learning Programs (NSLLP), a large-scale, mixed-methods research study funded by the National Science Foundation. The NSLLP, besides examining the general impact of living-learning programs on social and academic outcomes among undergraduates, includes a special emphasis on women in STEM fields.
