Rox Chiappa

Roxana Chiappa, also called Rox, is a lecturer in the Center for Higher Education Research, Teaching and Learning (CHERTL),  at Rhodes University in South Africa.  She obtained her doctorate degree at the University of Washington- Seattle, with a mixed-method study that looked at the effects of social class of origin on the  academics in Chile (see here publications).

Roxana’s research agenda is centered around the question how and to what extent social and economic inequalities, manifested among social groups, institutions and countries, get (re) produced  in the scientific and higher education systems.

AT CIRGE, she is the person in charge of coordinating the  series of webinars about social justice and doctoral education.
