My research aims to broaden participation in computing education by creating inclusive computer science education environments. I specifically work with Black and refugee students, where I aim to understand the barriers to accessing computing education and co-design interventions to make computing education more accessible to these communities. My previous work includes CS integration in language learning, co-construction in CS classes, and teaching CS in various after-school settings. I hold a BA in Computer Science and Spanish Studies from Bard College.
