Aditi PaiDr. Aditi Pai joined Spelman College in 2006 as a faculty member in the biology department. She earned tenure in 2011 and was promoted to full professor in 2020. As a scholar-teacher her research focuses on behavioral evolution and science education. To date, she has authored 36 publications and presented more than 100 talks at national conferences. Her research lab trained more than 54 Spelman STEM majors -- an outstanding achievement.

From early in her time at Spelman, Dr. Pai has participated in faculty governance. She has served on several standing committees on campus such as Faculty Council and the Curriculum Committee. Notably, she was one of the founders of the Junior Faculty Committee and served as its first chair (2008-2011). In addition, she has served in various other leadership roles at Spelman, including vice chair of the biology department, the Ed Tech committee chair, and more recently as co-director/director of the Teaching Resource and Research Center (2014-present).

Dr. Pai and the TRRC team have continually expanded programming based on stakeholder input; created partnerships on campus to offer collaborative workshops; started a social media presence on TRRC events and pioneered innovative pedagogical models such as the National Science Foundation funded “Genetics and Genealogy Project,” a companion to the Finding Your Roots curriculum based on Harvard University professor Henry Louis Gates, Jr.’s acclaimed PBS documentary series of the same name.
