Research Interests

My primary areas of expertise include practitioner inquiry, in-service teacher education, and qualitative research methods, as well as reflective and diffractive practice. My current scholarship utilizes new materialist theories to make visible the complex relations between humans and more-than-humans within educational contexts, drawing attention to our entangled potentiality as practitioners to (as Karen Barad would say) participate in the world’s becoming. I am a passionate supporter of community-based initiatives and am increasingly incorporating place-conscious pedagogies within my practice as an educator.  I understand my experiences through lenses of equity, and have a background in gender and education and women in the academy.
