As a Research Associate, Claudia develops grant proposals and directs research and development projects. Her work broadly focuses on school-based behavioral interventions, social skills instruction, and restorative practices with a focus on equitable outcomes for students from vulnerable groups defined by race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, and disability. She is particularly interested in developing and evaluating systemic interventions that are student-centered and supported by media. Together with Dr. Hill Walker, she currently serves as the Co-Principal Investigator of Project SOARS (Student Ownership, Accountability, and Responsibility for School Safety), a project funded by the National Institute of Justice and focused on promoting the safety of high school students through positive relationship-building and restorative problem-solving.
Claudia earned her Ph.D. in 1993 from the University of Oregon, is a voracious reader, avid gardener, baker, and martial artist. When she grows up, she would love to have her own cupcake cafe/lending library where people can meet and enjoy good conversation.
