About Me (Bio):
I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow, MIST; Peabody College, Vanderbilt University. In the fall I will be an Assistant Professor at the College of Education, University of Washington (in Leadership, Policy, and Organizations, K12). In my current role, I use mixed-methods to research the role of school and district leaders in the implementation of ambitious mathematics instruction as a part of a longitudinal design-based research project, the Middle-school Mathematics and the Institutional Setting of Teaching (MIST). In my overall research, I take a sociological organizational approach to understanding when and under what circumstances school systems improve.
