Research Associate, University of Oregon

I am a Research Associate at the Center for Advanced Technology in Education at the University of Oregon. Currently I am a Principal Investigator of Project ESCOLAR (Etext Supports for Collaborative Online Learning and Academic Reading) a five year grant funded by the Office of Special education Programs (OSEP) to develop, test, evaluate, refine, and disseminate Collaborative Online Projects designed to support academic reading of science content for middle school students with learning disabilities. I am also a Co-Principal Investigator of Project SSOAR (Stepping Up to SOAR: Strategies for Online Academic Reading) funded by OSEP and Project COPELLS (Collaborative Online Projects for English Language Learners) funded by the National Science Foundation. My areas of expertise include: a) literacy and bi-literacy instruction for English Language Learners students of Spanish speaking background, b) use of assistive technology to address the educational needs of students with disabilities, c) research design and analysis of qualitative and quantitative data.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa in 2000, a Master’s of Science in Special Education from the University of Oregon in 2008, and a Doctor of Philosophy from the University of Oregon’s School Psychology Program in 2009.
