I'm currently a PhD student in the Teaching, Learning, and Teacher Education division of the Graduate School of Education at the University of Pennsylvania. I am interested in examining the effectiveness of making and project-based learning (PBL) in STEAM education for Black and Brown youth, particularly in the spheres of student voice, identity, restorying, and creativity.
I have conducted research on synthetic biology making activities and high school student's attitudes about synthetic biology.
I have conducted electronic textiles research, specifically exploring computer science learning, identity, and the design of music wearables.
Through the Lucas Education Research of the George Lucas Educational Foundation, I conducted a project utilizing portraiture to explore high school students' experiences exercising student voice in project-based learning.
