Professional Summary:

Broadly, my research is themed around teacher education, professional socialization and identity development, mentoring relationships in higher education, and the role of equity and inclusion in cultivating supportive and sustainable educational environments. Specifically, my research explores issues of teacher preparation, teacher candidate identity formation, teacher professional identity formation, and teacher retention and attrition. In addition, my research examines professional socialization and identity development of graduate students and postdoctoral researchers, mentoring relationships, and mentoring practices in higher education as they relate to self-efficacy, sociocultural inequity, and belongingness within and across educational contexts.
