Assistant Professor


Dr. Park is an Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University. Dr. Park draws upon Critical Race Theory, Asian American Studies, and community engaged research to examine how Asian American families negotiate with race in and through educational institutions. She recently conducted an ethnographic investigation of community-based educational spaces in the Chicago-area Asian American community, which highlighted the role of community spaces in youths’ educational experiences and understandings of racializing discourses. In addition to publishing and presenting her work in multiple academic venues, Dr. Park draws upon her research in her work with Asian American and other youth of color in community-based organizations. She earned her Ph.D. in Educational Policy Studies from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a concentration in Social Sciences and a Minor in Qualitative Methods. She also holds an M.A. from UW-Madison and a B.A. from the University of California, Berkeley.

Prior to joining the faculty, Dr. Park was an IDEAL Provostial Fellow, part of the inaugural cohort of early-career scholars of race and ethnicity at Stanford University. Prior to that, she was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Institute for Research on Race and Public Policy (IRRPP) at the University of Illinois-Chicago.
