Eve Khadijiah Boyle, Ph.D., is a biological anthropologist with expertise in informal science education, community engagement, program management, and broadening participation initiatives. She aims to engage in projects that advance equity & have global impact on the STEMM research and education ecosystem. Eve is deeply committed to advancing the public understanding of science and has engaged public audiences at numerous venues including schools, museums, and the USA Science & Engineering Festival.
Eve received her Ph.D. in human paleobiology (a subfield of biological anthropology) from The George Washington University (GW) in 2019. As a graduate student, she founded the GW Annual STEM Symposium and led the Diversity in Science student group. From 2019 to 2020, Eve was a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Howard University Department of Anatomy and an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Anatomy at GW and Georgetown. During her postdoc, she wrote the “Handbook of Muscle Variations and Anomalies in Humans,” a textbook that was published in 2022.
From 2020 to 2022, Eve served as an AAAS Science & Technology Policy Fellow in the National Science Foundation Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences. At NSF, she primarily helped to launch Build and Broaden, which advances fundamental research and partnerships at minority-serving institutions. In 2022, she was a recipient of the NSF Director’s Award for Superior Accomplishment, for providing pioneering insights in the creation and implementation of that program. At NSF, she also contributed to the development of the GRANTED initiative and served as the Executive Secretary for the interagency Social and Behavioral Sciences working group.
Eve returned to Howard University in 2022 where she was the Associate Director of Training and Engagement Strategy for the Centers of Excellence, a health equity initiative in partnership with the District of Columbia. In this role, Eve created an internship program, facilitated a health careers exploration program for local youth, coordinated Howard University’s first ever celebration of Black Maternal Health Week, and built relationships with over 75 partner organizations.
Eve also recently supported The Good Food Institute (GFI) as a DEI in Workforce Development Consultant. In this role, she conducted a needs assessment with the goal of building a more inclusive alternative protein workforce. The final report, published to GFI’s website in July 2023, reviews the challenges faced by scholars from underrepresented and minoritized groups and describes opportunities for GFI and its partners to transform career development experiences for these individuals.
