    Research Interest:
    My interests are grounded in sociocultural theories of language, learning, and human development. In particular, I draws on linguistic anthropological perspectives such as language socialization and language ideologies for the purposes of understanding learning and development in urban schools. I teach courses in the Bilingual/ESL program as well as doctoral courses in Language, Literacy, and Culture. My work is anchored in communities whose language practices have been historically marginalized in many formal and official spaces of society.
