Emily Green, MA
Research Associate II
Emily Green, MA, works primarily on projects focusing on Equity and Inclusion in STEM. She researches K–12 through adult workforce with a focus on how access to resources shifts throughout this process. Prior to joining ETR she worked as a teacher with youth in Santa Cruz County at IRIS Science Academy and Green STEAM Education, where her focus was on teaching hands-on science to alternatively educated students and providing rigorous science education to everyone. It is through these experiences that she discovered the inequity present in STEM education. With her research, she hopes to alleviate these imbalances.
Ms. Green received her MA from San Jose State University in Applied Anthropology. She is an experienced qualitative researcher with expertise in data collection with young people and rigorous data analysis. Her current research brings Computer Science (CS) for All to local school districts with a focus on making CS accessible. She does this by working in Research-Practice Partnerships with local school districts, local community colleges, and other local non-profits. Emily coordinates these partnerships by acting as a broker helping researchers and school staff to understand each other’s needs. Emily regularly conducts, coordinates, and supervises qualitative research methodologies including designing protocols, observations, interviews, focus groups, surveys, case studies, and has expertise in qualitative software, thematic coding, and grounded theory.
