I am currently an assistant professor in the School of Education at the University of California, Irvine. My research focuses on educational inequality and policy, and considers the ways that districts, schools, teachers, peers, and parents can contribute to or ameliorate educational inequality. I am currently involved in projects examining teacher recruitment and retention in constrained labor and housing markets, how curriculum placement policies affect student learning, and how state accountability policies might affect school-level supports under the Every Student Succeeds Act.
