Research Interests

My research interests focus on the social and cultural dynamics of learning in the context of globalization and emerging technologies,with a specific focus on language, multimodal literacy, diversity and civic journalism. My current research explores how immigrant youth leverage their funds of knowledge and the affordance of multiple modalities to construct documentaries that inform public debates on social issues through participating in a multimedia journalism curriculum. I am also interested in exploring how people from diverse cultural backgrounds engage in new forms of learning and how social media and mobile technologies can be leveraged to bridge the gap between formal education and everyday experiences.
