Martin Storksdieck, an international leader in the study of how people of all ages learn science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM subjects, for short), both in and out of school, has been named head of the Center for Research on Lifelong STEM Learning at Oregon State University.

This research center was established two years ago to study how individuals with diverse life circumstances and identities become lifelong STEM learners, practitioners and researchers.

Storksdieck researches voluntary, or “free choice” learning, and how learning is connected to behaviors, identities and beliefs. He recently served as director of the board on science education at the National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C.
