Professional Summary

I am most passionate about exploring research questions that address the improvement of reading and writing skills of children. Three lines of research have emerged within this area: identification of the malleable factors that are associated with better reading and writing outcomes, development and validation of reading and writing interventions, and development and validation of assessment. My research focuses on supporting children with or at risk for disabilities, which includes those living in poverty, children with disabilities (e.g., children with language impairment/LI), and children from immigrant families (e.g., dual language learners).
