IIH Postdoctoral Fellow, Dean's and NSF Postdoctoral Fellow, Harvard Graduate School of Education
Sarah Rendón García is a National Science Foundation Social, Behavioral, & Economic Sciences (SBE) and Dean’s Postdoctoral Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education (HGSE). She received her Ph.D. degree in Human Development, Learning, and Teaching at Harvard University in May 2022.
Sarah’s research focuses on the ways children and adults in mixed-status immigrant families originating from Latin America awaken to what it means for them and/or their family members to be undocumented in the United States. She considers the perspectives of caregivers and children — independently, within their caregiver-child dyads, and as a family — to contribute empirical insights to our nascent understanding of these individuals’ lives. Her work has been generously funded by the NSF, Ford Foundation, and NAEd/Spencer Foundation Fellowships.
