As a former low-income high school student, high school teacher, and researcher, Dr. Bethke has a multi-dimensional perspective on the challenges facing the participants in the proposed Data Science Research Program. Her work designing, implementing, and evaluating research career development programs for diverse funders including the Wellcome Trust and numerous foundation clients of HRiA has given her insight on the factors needed to succeed in research, and the need to provide quality role models, mentoring, and research and educational experiences.
