She also holds a doctorate from the University of Maryland and M.A. and B.A. degrees from the University of Iowa. Her Center conducts extensive research on different aspects of women in film, working both on screen and behind the scenes, which has contributed to the newfound emphasis on diversifying Hollywood.
