Day is a doctoral student in Educational Psychology and Educational Technology at Michigan State University, studying identity development processes in informal STEM learning (science/technology/engineering/math). She hopes to use what she learns to advance the experiences of youth as they work to author unique and meaningful life pathways in STEM. Meanwhile, she’s entirely ecstatic about working with some of her favorite researchers, and as a result, she is no longer an enemy of Mondays.

Formerly, Day’s identity was that of science writer and communications professional based in Chicago. She was also a public educator at the Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago. Day received a Bachelors in Environmental Sciences and Journalism from Northwestern University in 2010.  You can contact Day at
