At present I am interested in the interrelatedness between education and place.  As a mixed methods researcher I utilize both quantitative and qualitative research approaches to investigate and understand the lived experiences of urban students and make sure that their “voices” are heard because so many times their stories are overlooked or minimized.  Additionally, I am interested in applied research.  I contend that it is not enough to just collect data and present findings, the information gleaned from research should be used to inform policies and address inequities.
