Scholarly Interests

My research agenda, broadly, is motivated by questions investigating inequality in education and the mechanisms within and outside of educational institutions that mediate the heterogeneous experiences and outcomes of students. My current research examines the influence of various institutional factors and social forces on teachers’ evaluations of student academic effort and potential, with a particular interest in the racial variation of those evaluations.
