My recent research aims to identify the teacher practices that narrow educational gaps and asks whether neoliberal accountability policies undermine teachers’ ability to put those practices into effect. I enjoy teaching Sociology of Education, Social Problems, and Social Statistics at the undergraduate level, and I primarily offer classes in the Inequalities and Social Justice area at the graduate level.
