Publications

My work can be found in Educational Researcher, Teachers College Record, Urban EducationThe Urban Review, and other venues.

I commonly attend and present at the American Educational Research Association (AERA) and the University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA), but I am always looking for new spaces to learn from colleagues, share work, and collaborate.
