Research Manager Sabrina Howard strongly believes in helping people push the boundaries of possibility through critical thought. Fascinated by the everyday lived experiences of average people, she specializes in sociological and anthropological qualitative methods and has extensive experience conducting ethnography and interviews. After completing her undergraduate degree at Williams College, Sabrina spent a year teaching at the International School of Manila, returning to the U.S. for grad school. As a teaching assistant, she engaged undergraduates in conversations surrounding race, gender, class, immigration, and systemic injustice; she brings these conversations to her work at IFTF by examining each project through the lens of equity and access, with wider implications and impact on individuals, organizations, and society at large. Sabrina earned her doctorate in American and Ethnic Studies at the University of Southern California.
