Recent study by the Texas A&M Physics & Astronomy team has been featured in the Physics Magazine. The study involving over 10,000 students found no evidence that men outperform women in introductory physics courses – which could help end stereotypes that harm women in STEM. The team included Dr. Erukhimova, Dr. Perry, Dr. Ford, Dr. Bassichis, and physics undergraduate student Mathew Dew.
