I am a qualitative researcher whose interests center on policy, equity and adult literacy education. As a former adult literacy teacher, I am interested in how marginalized/minoritized adults define their own learning needs and how to improve public policy and public programs to better meet these needs. Other interests include community-based adult education, urban education, new literacy studies, digital literacy, critical literacy, racial and cultural diversity in education, and educational ethnography.
