Tasha Zephrin

Tasha Zephirin is pursuing her Ph.D. in Engineering Education at Purdue University. She was first introduced to engineering education research as an undergraduate Electrical Engineering student assisting with first-year engineering courses at Virginia Tech—specifically with the development and assessment of a Mechatronics activity. Currently, she is a part of the Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship in Magnetic and Nanostructured Materials (IGERT-MNM), a collaborative interdisciplinary graduate program initiative between Norfolk State University, Cornell University, and Purdue University. One of her efforts in the IGERT-MNM program included the development of a “Best Practices in Teaching and Learning” module to help Trainees identify ways their technical research can be transferred to other formal and informal learning environments guided by educational research and theories. Her current research interests include investigating how organizational culture influences the development of engineering programs and how storytelling is used in engineering contexts. She is also an active member and former leader in the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).
