About Accordion Closed
Director of THE Education Lab: To Humanize Engineering Education which emphasizes promoting student growth/development in multiple dimensions, integrating inclusive, socio-culturally responsive, and emancipatory pedagogy/teaching practices, advocating student well-being, reconciling the social and technical nature of engineering, and challenging the dominant paradigm of what it means to be an engineer. His current research includes exploring a) how integrating holistic, socio-culturally responsive practices and Hispanic/Latinx cultural assets and values into educational success strategies influences the manner in which Hispanic/Latinx students develop a sense of belonging in engineering education, b) what community/cultural assets, wealth, and values students of color bring with them into engineering education, 3) where and how do they experience values conflicts in engineering, and 4) how do they navigate/reconcile those conflicts, as students or professionals. He has worked as an engineer in the manufacturing industry, a pastor in full-time ministry, and a high school STEM teacher.
