Research Interests:

Education, Educational Inequality, Race, Ethnic, and Nativity Differences in Educational Outcomes, Immigration

My primary field of interest is social stratification with particular focus on racial and ethnic inequality and education. My current work investigates black natives (African Americans) and black immigrants’ relationships to U.S. colleges and universities. My current research investigating immigrant children, the children of immigrants, and native children explores parenting practices, relationships between parents, and educational achievement across ethnicity, class, and immigration status.
