The paper earned the Superior Student Paper Award; Best Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Paper Award; and Best Paper Award, all in the Aerospace Engineering Division.

In the paper, Bowen and her co-authors—University of Michigan Aerospace Engineering faculty members Aaron Johnson and Ken Powell—presented a quantitative analysis of the underrepresentation and inequitable outcomes of women, students of color, and working-class students in an aerospace engineering department at a large, prestigious public research university. 

Bowen is currently a postdoctoral researcher in the College of Engineering, Computer Science and Technology at California State University, Los Angeles and a lecturer at the University of San Diego.
