Dr. Gómez recently received her PhD in Mexican American Studies. Her research investigates the influence of race and ethnicity in urban education and youth development. Her current work investigates the significance of critical pedagogies on the critical consciousness and sociopolitical development of adolescents, with particular focus on identity, race, ethnicity, immigration, gender, and culture on educational experiences. From a practical and theoretical perspective, her research draws from Critical Race Theory, sociopolitical development theory, community cultural wealth theory, and Participatory Action Research (PAR).
