Assistant Professor of Quantitative and Mixed Methods Research Methodologies, School of Education, University of Cincinnati, Cincinnati, Ohio
My specialty area is research methodology, which means I study how researchers conduct their research studies, and my scholarship focuses on understanding how researchers can meaningfully integrate quantitative and qualitative approaches in mixed methods research designs. As a faculty member in the University of Cincinnati’s Educational Studies doctoral program, I work to mentor and train graduate students (including future methodologists) as emerging scholars interested in a wide range of research approaches. In addition to teaching about mixed methods, I am involved in several mixed methods research projects, serve as an associate editor for the Journal of Mixed Methods Research, and co-edit the new Mixed Methods Research Series (SAGE Publications) with UNL alumna Dr. Nataliya Ivankova.
