Short description of research interests (max 100 words)

Broadly, to provide research that helps policymakers and practitioners improve systems and settings to better support disadvantaged youth growing up in extreme poverty. I am specifically interested in educational settings and settings level intervention work with a focus on better understanding heterogeneity of impacts: when, under what conditions, and for whom interventions as well as settings-level structures and processes successfully promote human development and flourishing. My work lies within urban contexts in the United States as well as in the context of low and middle-income countries.
