Biography

Nuria Jaumot-Pascual, Ph.D., is a Research Scientist at TERC. She researches the experiences of women and LGBTQ+ individuals of color in STEM higher education, with a particular focus on computer science and engineering. She specializes in qualitative, literature synthesis, and visual inquiry methods.

Dr. Jaumot-Pascual is currently PI for “Native American Women and Two-Spirit Individuals in Computing Higher Education: A Photo Elicitation Study of Persistence” (NAWC2) funded by the Women of Color in Computing Collaborative (Kapor Center & Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology at Arizona State University). NAWC2 studies the experiences of women and gender and sexual minorities in computer science undergraduate education using photo elicitation methods for data collection. This method uses participant-generated photographs in the context of an interview to collect data that is not always accessible through words alone.

Dr. Jaumot-Pascual is also Co-PI for “Literature Analysis and Synthesis of Women of Color in Technology and Computing” (LASOW) funded by the National Science Foundation – EHR Core. LASOW is systematically collecting and synthesizing the literature made accessible to the public 2000 – 2019 on women of color in computing and technology education and careers.

In addition to this work, Dr. Jaumot-Pascual has conducted research in informal math learning in out-of-school environments, such as libraries and museums, with intergenerational groups. She also conducts program evaluations.

Dr. Jaumot-Pascual’s writing has been published in peer-reviewed journals, such as the Journal of Engineering Education, Frontiers in Education, the Teaching for Excellence and Equity in Mathematics Journal, and Journal of Leisure Research. She holds a doctorate degree in Qualitative Research and Evaluation Methodologies from the University of Georgia.
