Biography
Janet Y. Tsai is a Colorado native who is happy to be back in her home state, pursuing her doctorate in beautiful Boulder, CO after living in Boston, MA and Hong Kong, China. A yoga teacher and student, Janet also loves to hike in the mountains and ride her bike around town. Janet enjoys all kinds of Asian foods and is still working on perfecting her various fried noodle recipes. An avid reader and devourer of fashion and feminist news, blogs, and gossip, Janet looks forward to winter because it brings NBA basketball season (as well as snow!). Janet's research currently focuses on sophomore-level engineering students and how they construct status hierarchies among themselves, looking to understand the eventual and systemic impacts on student persistence in engineering. The goal of increasing women's representation in engineering is of critical importance and interest to Janet, she thinks it's the hardest and most complicated problem she has ever investigated and tried to do anything about. Currently, Janet is an instructor and postdoctoral research associate in the Engineering Plus program at the University of Colorado Boulder.
