Dr. Malcom-Piqueux’s primary interest centers on postsecondary access and success for minoritized women and men in STEM fields. Following this interest, she has conducted research in several areas including the relationship between financial aid and STEM outcomes, the role of four-year minority serving institutions and community colleges in creating educational equity in STEM, and gender equity in STEM among minoritized populations. Dr. Malcom-Piqueux also studies the educational experiences and outcomes of students of color at Historically Black Colleges and Universities, predominantly Black institutions, Hispanic-serving institutions, and Tribal Colleges and examines the congruence of the minority-serving designation and academic outcomes among their target populations.
Her work has appeared in Educational Researcher, the Review of Higher Education, Harvard Educational Review, among other journals, and in volumes edited by Routledge, SUNY Press, Johns Hopkins University Press, and Stylus Publishing.
Dr. Malcom-Piqueux received her Ph.D. in Urban Education with an emphasis on Higher Education from the University of Southern California, and her M.S. and S.B. in Planetary Science from Caltech and MIT, respectively.
