  Dr. Brian Burt
assistant professor

Dr. Burt’s program of research uses qualitative methodological approaches to study the experiences of graduate students, and the institutional policies and practices that influence students’ educational and workforce pathways. His current research projects fall in two strands: 1) understanding team-based science, and 2) exploring the experiences of underrepresented graduate students of color in engineering. Through this program of research, Dr. Burt seeks to provide new understandings of the complexity of science participation; the aim is to better understand the experiences that promote or turn students away from science pathways. The implications of this work have the capacity to improve student-to-faculty (as well as student-to-student) interactions, and inform recommendations for the (re)design of supportive learning environments.

Here are some keywords: historically underrepresented populations in higher education, graduate student achievement, Black male retention and persistence, learning in research teams, and students’ experiences in computer science and engineering fields, broadening participation to STEM
