BioRamón Antonio Martínez is an associate professor in the Graduate School of Education and the Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity at Stanford University. His research explores the intersections of language, race, and ideology in K-12 public schools, with a particular focus on literacy learning among multilingual children and youth, and the preparation of teachers to work in multilingual settings. In addition to his long-term, community-engaged, and ethnographically informed research, Dr. Martínez actively supports pre-service teachers through his ongoing work in the Stanford Teacher Education Program (STEP). His scholarship has been published in journals such as Anthropology & Education Quarterly, International Multilingual Research Journal, Language Policy, Linguistics and Education, Modern Language Journal, Research in the Teaching of English, and Review of Research in Education. Dr. Martínez earned his Ph.D. from the Division of Urban Schooling in the Graduate School of Education & Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe majority of my current research projects concern the sociology of science and research innovation. Here are some examples of projects we are pursuing:
1. the process of intellectual jurisdiction across fields and disciplines
2. the process of knowledge innovation diffusion in science
3. the propagators of scientific careers and advance
4. the role of identity and diversity on the process of knowledge diffusion and career advance
5. the process of research translation across scientific fields and into practice
6. the formal properties and mechanisms of ideational change (network analysis, or holistic conceptions of scientific propositions and ideas)
7. developing methods for identifying the rediscovery of old ideas recast anew
8. investigating the process of scientific review
I am also heavily involved in research on social networks and social network theory development. Some of my work concerns relational dynamics and cognitive networks as represented in communication. This often concerns the communication of children (in their writings and speech in classrooms) and academic scholars. I am also co-editing a special issue in Social Networks on "network ecology", and I am a coauthor on a social network methods textbook coming out with Cambridge Press (Forthcoming, by Craig Rawlings, Jeff Smith, James Moody and Daniel McFarland).
Last, I am heavily involved in institutional efforts to develop computational social science, computational sociology, and education data science on Stanford's campus.
