I'm an Associate Professor at the University of Alabama in the Department of Educational Studies. I am lead author of the Cognitive Abilities Test (Form 8) alongside Dr. David Lohman. I conduct educational measurement research related to test validity and fairness with a particular interest in the accessibility of tests for English learner students. My other love is STEM education, where I enjoy evaluating curriculum interventions that promote STEM retention along the academic pipeline.
