My interests revolve around how we construct our identities, particularly through the ways we argue who we are to other social actors. Currently, I am exploring the experiences of elementary Latinx students learning and doing mathematics. Previously, I have explored how prospective elementary teachers argue their identities as mathematics teachers and the emotional labor as they learn to teach mathematics. Argumentation has been a big part of the way I make sense of students' and teachers' experiences in school.
