All of my work focuses on the intersection between scholarship and practice. The translation from research findings to implementation can raise new issues that require the expertise of practitioners and policy-makers to adapt and transform recommendations to be successful in real-world contexts serving a wide range of people. In return, it is necessary to gather this collective wisdom and bring it to researchers to inform future questions and study designs so they are increasingly relevant to practice. Applying this approach to a specific field of study, my research focuses on helping early childhood educators use social-emotional teaching practices to improve children's sense of psychological safety to learn at school. Specifically, my lab focuses on implementation science, social-emotional learning, and increasing teacher capacity to help children of all races and cultural backgrounds to engage in learning.
