I am an award-winning researcher dedicated to engaging in research that informs practice.


My research investigates how human and social conditions impact individuals’ engagement with and interpretation of results from assessments. By taking these factors into consideration, my work looks to question the long-held assumption that social science measurement is an objective science.
