Heidi Cian earned her PhD in Science Curriculum and Instruction at Clemson University in 2019. Her research centers on science learning that takes place outside of formal settings, particularly in communities through interactions with local, personally-relevant socioscientific issues. She is interested in understanding how that learning is associated with community affiliations and identity and the ways the three intersect to influence how individuals approach socioscientific issues.
