Catherine Dornfeld Tissenbaum uses mixed-methods approaches (e.g,. Design-Based Research, Participatory Design Research) to design scaffolds for learning and collaboration in formal and informal learning environments. She is especially interested in supporting racial equity in museums and other out-of-school contexts.
Rachel McMillian, Ph.D., is a curriculum theorist and educational researcher whose work broadly explores two intersecting avenues: Black Education and Critical Prison Studies. Through counterstorytelling, she focuses on 1) the schooling and educational experiences of Black people who were (wrongfully) incarcerated as children/youth and, 2) Black liberatory education and curriculum that occurs within spaces of confinement and enclosure.
Asif Wilson's research explores justice-centered pedagogies in P-20 school spaces. He studies the forces that influence these pedagogies and how they are enacted.
