    BioDaniela Gamboa is a PhD student in Educational Policy at Stanford's Graduate School of Education. Her previous experience as a teacher, as a government official, and as an advocate of civil society reinforced her commitment to the delivery of equitable, inclusive, and quality education for all learners. After serving in public schools and as a Teach for Peru fellow, Daniela led initiatives towards the strengthening of inclusive education systems in the Ministry of Education of Peru and the Peruvian Down Syndrome Society, collaborating on cross-country initiatives with members of the Regional Network for Inclusive Education (Latin America), Down Syndrome International, and Inclusion International.

  • Andrea Christine Geissinger

    Andrea Christine Geissinger

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education

    BioAndrea Geissinger is a SCANCOR (Scandinavian Consortium for Organizational Research) Postdoctoral Scholar. Her research interest lies at the intersection between digital innovation, organizational sociology, and sociological institutionalism. She is motivated to understand the impact of digital technology on social and cultural norms and values through qualitative and archival methods. For instance, by drawing on institutional theories, she has explored one of the most promising alternative forms of organization of the past decade: the sharing economy. As digital platforms set new norms by drawing on elements of both market and community on a large scale, Andrea’s current research focuses on deepening our understanding of what this “community” means in, for, and around organizations and society.

    Andrea is also a Research Fellow at the House of Innovation at the Stockholm School of Economics, Sweden. She holds a Ph.D. in Business Administration from Örebro University School of Business, M.Sc. from Stockholm Business School, and a B.A. from Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany. Prior to her research career, Andrea worked in management consulting.

  • Gabriella Silva Gorsky

    Gabriella Silva Gorsky

    Postdoctoral Scholar, Education

    BioGage Gorsky is a queer mixed Mexican Jewish multimodal research advisor, data analyst, and program evaluator who uses a range of methodologies to explore intersections of identity and the phenomenon of social categorization, with a focus on the liminal and marginal embodied experiences of real people. They have a doctorate in Educational Measurement and Statistics from the University of Washington, where their dissertation examined persistent gender stereotypes embedded into the linguistic features of middle school math word problems. Gage’s inquiry bridges social science themes, with expertise and experience doing research spanning disciplines- education, history, statistics, feminist and queer theories, psychology, and identity development.

    Past projects have covered dynamic subject matter, including a genealogical and historical study of the Mormon migration to California during the mid-19th century, a statistical exploration of factors influencing healthcare utilization among transgender adults in the United States, and HR- and disability justice-focused survey research on workplace inclusion practices within a markedly mixed-ability workforce.

    Their most recent work explores the dynamic expression of intersectional Jewish identity, including collaborations with the Jews of Color Initiative, where they helped lead “Beyond the Count,” the largest ever study of Jews of Color released August 2021, as well as the Jim Joseph Foundation, SVARA, Nazun, and synagogues across the United States.

  • Patricia Gumport

    Patricia Gumport

    Professor of Education

    BioAs a sociologist of higher education, Dr. Gumport has focused her research and teaching on key changes in the academic landscape and organizational character of American higher education. She has studied the dynamics of academic change in several arenas — illuminating what facilitates change and what impedes it — across and within different types of colleges and universities. Extending core concerns in the sociology of knowledge and institutional theory, Dr. Gumport has analyzed how organizational, intellectual, political, economic, and professional interests redefine the content, structure, and relative legitimacy of academic fields. Specific studies include: the emergence and institutionalization of interdisciplinary fields; professional socialization across academic disciplines; organizational restructuring and selective investment; the ascendance of industry logic in public higher education; forces that promote and inhibit academic collaboration; decision-making about appropriate organizational forms to support new ideas; and leading organizational change for optimal effectiveness with internal and external stakeholders. Her research within the United States and Europe examines how universities that are ostensibly competitors determine when and how to collaborate. Her analyses include implications for academic leaders who pursue strategic initiatives, manage environmental pressures and stakeholder interests, and seek leadership development resources.
