College Teaching Workshop Series: Conversation with Dr. Sharda Umanath

Sharda Umanath

The Graduate School’s Certificate in College Teaching would like to invite you to an in-person conversation with Duke alumna Dr. Sharda Umanath, who is currently an associate professor of psychology at Claremont McKenna College and the director of CMC’s Memory and Aging Lab (UMA Lab). She earned her Ph.D. in cognitive psychology from Duke in 2014 and did her postdoctoral work at Washington University in St. Louis.

While a graduate student Duke, Dr. Umanath was in the Certificate in College Teaching and the Preparing Future Faculty program. At this discussion, you'll be able to talk with her about her career path and the balance among teaching, scholarship and service she has navigated through and beyond Duke. You can read more about Dr. Umanath and her lab here; please come with questions for the discussion. 

Note that this event is entirely in-person; we are not planning for an online component. For more information, contact Dr Hugh Crumley at
