Her work takes place within three interrelated strands: 1) Working within the intersection of formal/informal education in support of understanding and designing new possibilities for equity-oriented teaching and learning; 2) designing teaching-learning tools and experiences that promote expansive learning outcomes, such as critical agency, identity work, and social transformation (as grounded within expanding disciplinary expertise); and 3) participatory methodologies for embracing authentic research + practice work that attends to practitioner, youth and community members voices, and critically engages the goals of equity and justice.
