Research Interests

The overarching theme of my research agenda involves the role of education in the incorporation of immigrant youth into the US. My research examines the multiple and complex ways in which race, class, gender and local context influence immigrant students’ opportunities, experiences and identities.

I am currently engaged in three research projects: 1) "Bridging Opportunity Gaps" (with Reva Jaffe-Walter) focuses on how students who attend high schools in the Internationals Network for Public Schools negotiate their 12th grade year and the transition to college; 2) "Educating Immigrant Students in Non-Gateway Communities" (with Margaret Hawkins) focuses on the way rural and suburban communities in Wisconsin are responding to the recent growth immigrant English learner population; 3) My third project is an historical ethnography on the role of education in the racial positioning of Chinese Americans in the Mississippi and Arkansas Delta from the 1940’s to the present.
