  • Research Interests
    • I am interested in how the general public (policymakers, teachers, parents, etc.) makes sense of education research, particularly research on teacher effectiveness. My work has focused on the language of research & policy, and how our rhetorical choices – for example, the use of buzz words or emotionally charged language – can shape understanding in subtle (or not-so-subtle) ways. I am currently working on understanding how technical research (such as measuring teacher effectiveness with value-added modeling techniques) gets incorporated into broader societal conversations about policy, education, values, etc.
