RISE lab welcomes Darryl Diptee

Hailing from University of California, Berkeley’s Graduate School of Education, Darryl Diptee became a RISE lab member in late 2020.

As a doctoral student, Darryl’s research investigates how underrepresented minority students might better negotiate STEM identities within oppressive social systems. He is leveraging the theory of embodied cognition to design a mind-body intervention that facilitates the development of strong STEM identities¬†in students.

During his 20 years of military service, Darryl gained priceless experience as a US naval officer who led missions around the world. Those talents have been indispensable to the RISE lab, and we are grateful (and excited!) to have him on our team of researchers at Howard University.
