I am particularly interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning and using the findings from this field to enhance students’ experiences in the classroom. I am also interested in understanding the processes that underlie the stigma toward persons with disabilities that can lead to discrimination in employment settings.

Finally, I have recently gained a curiosity in post-emancipation sociological and anthropological studies and how understanding one's familial past can lead to positive outcomes for one's future.
