Biography

My research and teaching are driven by a dedication to improving the school experiences of students with exceptionalities. I am particularly interested in documenting, identifying influences on, and developing interventions related to psychosocial and mental health functioning. I draw on a variety of methods and data sources in my research, including analyses of small student focus groups and modeling of data from the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth. In my teaching, I aim to best prepare future teachers of inclusive classrooms and further develop the skills and knowledge of graduate-level learners.
