My research interests focus on the intersection of intervention and implementation by developing and exploring the effectiveness of school-based academic interventions, the factors that contribute to student responsiveness of those interventions, and strategies to support intervention implementation.

Accelerating Math Performance with Practice Strategies (AMPPS): This project, conducted in collaboration with John Begeny at North Carolina State University, involves the development and evaluation of a resource-friendly mathematics intervention program focusing on whole number knowledge that aligns with current empirical evidence and educational policy.
Promoting Conceptual and Procedural Knowledge of Whole Numbers through Peer Tutoring: This project involves evaluating three practice strategies (i.e., standard drill, strategy-focused, and math vocabulary) delivered through peer-tutoring to promote basic fact fluency at the classroom level.
