Adrianna Smell (she/her/hers)
Adrianna is pursuing her PhD from Case Western Reserve University in sociology, with concentrations in social inequalities and research methods. At CWRU, she acts as a graduate research assistant for two faculty during the academic year and teaches an ESL course for incoming international students in the summer. She also works, when needed, as a research consultant for the Social Research Lab at the University of Northern Colorado and Inclusive Solutions, a private consulting company.
As a skilled project manager, Adrianna is experienced in qualitative and quantitative research. She hopes to use her education and skills “to give power and voice back to those who are marginalized in our society.”
“I became involved with Springtide to enhance my research skills and return to my roots as an applied researcher,” she says.
As for other pursuits, Adrianna says, “I hope to have hobbies once I finish my PhD.”
