**Research in Progress**

__Early College IMPACT: Improving Mathematics Preparation, Assessment & Conceptual Thinking__- This project expands a mathematics laboratory model to improve student engagement and thinking in early college mathematics courses.

__Teaching Social Justice Mathematics__: This project reimagines the meaning of "social justice mathematics" as a

*practice of possibility*based on mathematical modeling and education research methods. Faculty teams develop group-worthy tasks for undergraduates. Our 2019 faculty symposium website can be found here

__The Mathematics Teacher Project__: This project seeks to understand the professional networks, classroom practices, beliefs and attitudes of underrepresented teachers of mathematics in secondary, post-secondary, and non-traditional settings.

__Academic Communities in Elementary & Undergraduate Mathematics__: This project extends my graduate studies. I am learning social network analysis (SNA) and integrating elementary graph theory to examine ties between collegial networks in "small-sized" and "medium-sized" communities, such as classrooms & college campuses.
