Drawing from a decade of out-of-school STEM design and teaching in science museums and centers, community organizations, summer programs, and science media, I seek to amplify institutional capacity for re-framing STEM education through a justice lens. This involves multilayered efforts that embrace the complexity and mobility of learners, and the porosity and possibility of learning spaces and programs. The goal of this work is to affect systemic change with BIPOC youth and youth from low-income communities, by re-imagining and restructuring learning spaces, programs, and relationships for more equitable educational futures.

 

In my research, I develop participatory methods and approaches to study life, learning, and development outside of school. Ongoing projects are grounded in the learning sciences, critical theory, and sociocultural perspectives on youth development, informed by youth expertise on what structures support pathways to desired futures.
