Oluchi C. Nwosu

Oluchi Nwosu-Randolph is a postdoctoral fellow in the Sociology department at Vanderbilt University. Her interests pertain to ways that race, ethnicity, and identity development shape individuals’ perceptions of challenges and opportunities. Her dissertation examined the utility of DuBois’ double-consciousness, black feminism, and critical race theory for understanding how families and schools shape identity development processes for young refugees resettling in the US. As a member of the Beyond the PhD Research Team, she studies how postdoctoral experiences in STEM fields influence the decisions that women and underrepresented minorities make to leave or remain in academia.
