I am a sociologist committed to social justice research, especially in the field of education. I am a Professor at the CUNY-Graduate Center in the Urban Education, Sociology, and Critical Social/Personality Psychology programs.
My research focuses on how educational inequality works at the school level, taking root in students' self-evaluations and actions, including their sense of exclusion, entitlement, constraint, possibility, success and failure. I believe understanding these dynamics is crucial for re-envisioning just and care-ful schools.
