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.  For my dissertation I will utilize a mixed methods design to investigate how black male high school students draw on neighborhood based capital to be successful in school.
