About Me

Currently, I am an Associate Professor of Educational Policy and Leadership at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Simultaneously, I serve as the Department Chair of Educational Psychology, Leadership, and Higher Education. I have a law and society background, having earned a Ph.D. from the Department of Education Policy Studies at Penn State and a J.D. from the University of Iowa College of Law. My work interrogates the intersection of education law, education policy, and the politics of education. Specifically, I study how law, policy, and politics interact with race and racism to sustain technologies of oppression.
