His academic expertise includes the development of the original theoretical constructs of critical border dialogism and critical border praxis, which follows on the principles of border pedagogy and critical, place-based pedagogies.

Previous educational experiences include 15 years of teaching K-12 in New Mexico, California, and Korea.
