I am an educational psychology graduate student in the Department of Counseling, Educational Psychology, and Special Education at Michigan State University. I am broadly interested in how racial/ethnic group diversity affects achievement. To understand this relationship, my research focuses on the social-psychological processes underpinning achievement motivation specifically self/collective efficacy and cooperation (social interdependence).

As an educational coach in a middle school I am interested in the intersection of equity, technology and project-based learning. I am interested in how students can use technology to create authentic products that solve a problem in their community and the results a learning experience of this nature have on students. I am particularly interested in the impact on students’ self-perceptions and teacher perceptions of students.

I am interested in computer science education; in particular, the causes of its persistent gender gap. I am currently examining the impact that a task’s collaboration level has on female middle school students’ self-efficacy and self-efficacy’s resultant influence on students’ intention to enroll in computer science courses.

I am exploring educational research topics that promote a greater experience of justice and equity in the classroom. I am studying the impact of classroom environment factors, such as teacher approachability and perceived autonomy, on girls of colors as it pertains to interest in mathematics. The lack of female representation in STEM fields is well known but not extensively researched. I will be adding to the literature to create more inclusive learning environments that are consistent with how female students would describe a supportive classroom.
