Research Interests

At the center of my research are transdisciplinary perspectives on social justice, which cuts across theory, epistemology and pedagogy. My main four areas of research include: Socio-spatial justice, Urban Education, preservice and inservice teacher dispositions, and marginalized/undervalued student literacies and identities with an emphasis on gender identity. Social justice/equity/asset-focused, critical race, culturally relevant/responsive/sustaining, feminist, geospatial, spatiality and temporality, trans*+, trans, queer, crip, critical discourse analysis, anti-bullying theory/pedagogy, and critical literacy theories primarily frame my work.
