While my primary academic work focuses on K-12 schooling in the United States, my professional experiences exist in the broader discipline of public policy. I've been lucky enough to work within a range of projects and roles beyond my primary areas of interest, some of which are detailed here.

  • Consult on qualitative research and curriculum with People Rocket, a human-centered design firm. 

  • Spent one summer farming and coordinating volunteers with Growing Hope, an urban farm and food access nonprofit in Ypsilanti, Michigan.

  • Provided technical assistance as a "human trainer" for the Institute of Social Research's LIFE-M Project, which aims to create a massive longitudinal and intergenerational database through the use of machine learning.
