Free Speech in Pk-20 classrooms (2019-2020)
I surveyed and interviewed classroom teachers and university faculty about their experiences with free speech or controversial "speech acts" in their classroom and learning spaces since 2015. I used this data to develop a series of online modules for K-12 and higher education professionals. This project started as part of my fellowship with the National Center for Free Speech and Civic Engagement in 2018.

Title IX coordinators in K-12 schools in the #MeToo Era (2018)
This project started by interviewing a small group of Title IX coordinators about their perceptions of and preparedness for this role in their school district. We have completed a national survey of Title IX coordinators to see if the findings from our pilot study are reflected in a larger sample of professionals. Publications:
