I benefited tremendously from Stanford’s ICE Ph.D. program. I took rigorous and engaging classes with world-renowned professors, received top-notch training in educational research methods, participated in research projects in the U.S. and abroad, and interacted daily with brilliant peers. After earning my Ph.D. at Stanford, I became an assistant professor of international development education at Florida State University, where I also directed international educational research and development projects at a large research institute. In 2010, I came to the Claremont Graduate University, where I teach and conduct research in the area of international comparative education. I can honestly say that I could not do this fascinating work without the training I received at Stanford.
