Research Interests

Amarette Filut trained in psychology at UW-Whitewater where she earned a BS and graduated magna cum laude in 2014. She has broad interest in research focused on addressing barriers to women's career advancement in science and medicine. Amy has experience in the design and implementation of both quantitative and qualitative research. Previously she worked with Dr. Christine Kohelmainen, Director of the Veterans Administration Advanced Fellowship in Women's Health National HUB, on a study to examine gender differences in internal medicine residents' responses to leading cardiopulmonary resuscitations. She also worked with Dr. Jeannine Rowe, Assistant Professor at UW-Whitewater, on a study examining the benefits of intergenerational social gatherings for children and older adults within the community. Currently, she works with Dr. Anna Kaatz and Dr. Molly Carnes on research addressing gender and race disparities in NIH grant funding outcomes. For this project she leads a team in constructing and validating a large database of NIH award outcomes. Amy's career goal is to be a leader in research, and faculty at a research intensive university. She plans to apply for PhD programs this coming year.
