Research Summary

My scholarship draws from my experience as a college student affairs professional in residential life, student leadership, and multicultural programming; my work facilitating intergroup dialogues on campuses across the country as an Associate with the National Sustained Dialogue Institute, and my background in the arts. My research centers on methodological and pedagogical inquiries of social (in)justice, ethics, and representation. Methodologically, I am interested in the intersections and entanglement of theory and methodology, and artful approaches to inquiry.
