STEMS2 Masters Concentration Director Tara O’Neill co-authored a paper titled Evidence for Professional Conceptualization in Science as an Important Component of Science Identity with Ariana S. Huffmyer and Judy Lemus of the Hawaiʻi Institute of Marine Biology (HIMB). The paper is based on a chapter of Huffmyer’s dissertation that was focused on the development of student identity conceptualizations during a science research experience. Under the advisement of Lemus, Huffmyer developed a dissertation that includes both natural science research in coral-symbiont ecological, physiology and educational research. O’Neill was also a member of Huffmyer’s doctoral committee, providing specific partnership support for the science identity component of the dissertation research.
