Ms. Audrey Martinez-Gudapakkam is a qualitative researcher with over ten years of experience in STEM education research and evaluation in public schools, community-based organizations, and universities in Massachusetts, Texas, and Mexico.
Audrey draws on her prior teaching experience in her work on evaluation projects, which primarily involve STEM-related teacher professional development. Audrey’s other work combines her interests in early childhood education, minorities, and immigrants, including an investigation she is conducting on how to engage Latino families with young children by building on daily activities to teach math and science concepts. Audrey came to TERC from EDC, where she evaluated STEM educational programs and researched a Latino teen pregnancy prevention program.
Outside of TERC, Audrey enjoys biking, spending time with family, and volunteering for the Family Nurturing Center (FNC), an organization that supports families in Boston.
