My research looks at the intersections of learning and identity development in critical pedagogical and disciplinary learning environments. Using ethnographic, micro-ethnographic, interaction, discourse, survey, and community-based methods of data collection and analysis, my work highlights the developmental and learning processes that foster situated disciplinary, racial, and political identities in expansive disciplinary educational contexts, and how these identities shape student participation and sense-making over time and across contexts
