Alicia has over seven years experience working within the non-profit and education sector. Most recently, she worked in Arlington, Virginia as a secondary school teacher. There she taught an interdisciplinary course to middle and highschool students that aimed to bridge the gap between humanities and STEM subjects. Prior to teaching, Alicia worked in development at several different non-profits in Atlanta, Georgia including The Carter Center and CARE USA. She is excited to use both her knowledge from her teaching career as well as her experience in non-profit development to help Project Scientist reach their goals. Alicia holds a B.S. in International Relations and Modern Languages as well as a M.S. in International Relations and Global Development from The Georgia Institute of Technology.
Favorite Woman in STEM: Dr. Neha Kumar, a Georgia Tech professor who works to inform the design and adoption of computing technologies in marginal contexts. Dr. Kumar was the first to clearly teach Alicia how a feminist perspective on science and technology can change lives.
