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.
I am thrilled to have joined the University at Buffalo Graduate School of Education as an Assistant Professor of Learning Sciences in the Department of Learning and Instruction. I earned my PhD in Learning Sciences at Indiana University.
I continue to work with Drs. Nichole Pinkard, Sheena Erete, and Denise Nacu on the Digital Youth Divas Project. I also write and work with Dr. Kylie Peppler and the Creativity Labs from University of California, Irvine.
