Current Research and Scholarly Interests
My research trajectory examines how marginalization is indexed across the globe. More specifically I study the functions of marginalization for students who are overrepresented in special education programs in addition to exploring how this issue is exacerbated by the underrepresentation of teachers historically marginalized both domestically and internationally. Furthermore, I also study teachers mental health.
