Expert Bio

Professor Skorinko investigates social factors that influence our attitudes, decisions, and interactions. This includes factors such as stigmas, stereotypes, culture, and perspective taking. She also considers social-cultural factors during the development of assistive technologies and is currently co-PI on a grant with the Disable Persons Protection Commission to develop assistive technologies for those with disabilities. She also plays a leading role in utilizing WPI’s recent ADVANCE grant to examine faculty promotion processes, identify areas of bias that may be impacting female faculty, and implement more equitable policies and practices. Ultimately, she aims to better understand social stigmas, and more importantly promote and enhance equality, diversity, and cultural understanding.
