My recent research focuses on how measuring and rating teacher quality affects both students and teachers through their entire educational process and how public policies influence underprivileged groups such as immigrants and low-income populations. Particularly, my research looks at how to improve inequality through longitudinal studies of students through the education system. It also looks at how immigrants and overall inequality are affected by immigration policies and the teaching of English as second language in the United States education system. In addition, I study how low-income individuals are more adversely affected while traversing the criminal justice system.
