Sara Suzuki is a Senior Researcher at CIRCLE, where she works on projects that explore how organizations, institutions, and systems embedded within and across communities can support and sustain youth civic engagement in all of its forms. In particular, she focuses on how young people enact sociopolitical reflection and action (critical consciousness) to challenge systems of oppression and bring about social change. In her work, she also pursues innovation in anti-racist and anti-oppressive quantitative methodology, in particular by studying the application of QuantCrit to mixture modeling techniques. Sara serves as Chair of the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice Committee at Tisch College. She has a Ph.D. and M.S. in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology from Boston College and a B.A. in Psychology from Washington University in St. Louis.
