Kjersten Bunker Whittington
Graduate Dissertation Fellow 2006-07, Sociology

Kjersten Bunker WhittingtonĀ studies gender and scientific careers. Her dissertation focuses on the impact of organizational context on male and female scientific productivity. She examines how differences in organizational goals, supply side demands, and the social arrangements and reward incentives of academia and industry contribute to differences in gender disparity across employment sectors and organizational settings. Using qualitative, quantitative and network methodologies, she addresses whether and how the durable gender inequality in science careers is affected by the recent changing boundaries between universities and firms, and the increasing trend to commercialize basic research in academia.
