Assistant Professor


Specialty/Research Focus

Learning Sciences

Professional Summary:

I am interested in the ways crafting, art-making, and other design activities can intersect with and enhance equitable learning in both formal and informal environments. Particularly, I seek to design educational experiences in ways that highlight and honor voices and practices that are traditionally minoritized and undervalued in educational settings.
