Research Interests

How do educational innovations get implemented, institutionalized and scaled up in K-12 schools?  How do micro-level social and material interactions constitute, facilitate or obstruct these processes? 

More specifically, my dissertation focused on changing models of school discipline.

, My research program addresses the broad questions: How are research-based programs and policies developed, translated, implemented, and scaled up? What modes of reinforcement and reproduction support persistence and change in existing practices? How might researchers work with teachers, school leaders and policymakers to better bridge the 'research-practice gap'?

I investigate these questions in empirical contexts ranging from comprehensive school reforms, to online teacher PD, to research-practice partnerships, with a special focus on school-based restorative justice practices.

Research Interests

My research examines how young people organize their own learning and how to design spaces and activities that allow them to do so. Most of this research has been conducted in the context of STEAM activities and maker spaces, drawing on my own personal background in the arts. One line of my work investigates interest development and the role of interest in learning. This includes how interest-driven learning supports the development of 21st century skills, how young people pursue interests and learning across contextual boundaries, and how interest-driven learning environments might support equitable engagement. A second line of work examines how young people organize and make use of social and material resources to make sense of spatial phenomena. And a third line examines how educators make sense of and adapt innovative educational programming to meet their needs and the needs of their students, including adapting to a need for remote instruction. 

My work is informed by a range of both cognitive and socio-cultural perspectives on learning, but primarily draws upon distributed perspectives on thinking and learning. As a result my current work is primarily qualitative, relying on video-ethnographic and interaction analysis methods. However, I also have a background in quantitative analysis, and have conducted a number of mixed methods studies.
