About Me

I am a professor of mathematics education in the Department of Curriculum and Instruction at Indiana University. My research focuses on inequities in students’ mathematics outcomes and the policies and practices that shape those outcomes. I conduct large-scale analyses of national datasets, as well as smaller, classroom-based studies. My current research considers whether “good girl” socialization of females inhibits their development of “Bold Problem Solving” approaches and contributes to gender disparities in mathematics outcomes.

I am currently the Co-Chair of AERA’s Research in Mathematics Education SIG and a member of the AERA Grants Program Governing Board. I previously served as Associate Dean and then Interim Dean of the University of Illinois Graduate College.
