My research focuses on family science learning in the home and other non-school settings, like zoos and parks. Currently, I lead a research team investigating aspects of family science conversations that support children’s development of STEM interests and identity. My studies highlight the diverse voices of Latine children and families, and represent members from those communities as researchers, advisors, and participants. Overall, my commitment to encourage equitable participation in STEM guides and informs my work. For that reason I also engage in initiatives that inform STEM education policy at the national and local levels.

Thank you for visiting.
