Amplified: Race and Reality in STEM
Tyrone Porter, PhD
Professor, Biomedical Imaging and Instrumentation Cellular and Biomolecular Engineering, UT Austin
What’s the price you pay when you walk into a room? For Black STEM students and professionals— as well as individuals from other underrepresented groups—there’s a cost to entering the classroom, lab, conference, and more. Tyrone Poster, principal investigator at Boston University, has paid this tax on countless occasions in his STEM career. His experience, while not unique, provides a deeper look into what many students and professionals also encounter. Tyrone offers his best prescription for confronting what can often be a silent burden and putting a stop to the cultural tax many pay.
