Angela Booker, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Department of Education at UC San Diego. She 
is currently studying ways youth, families, and schools make use of media 
and technology for participation, learning, and community development. Dr. Booker is particularly concerned with addressing barriers that diminish access to public participation among underrepresented and disenfranchised communities. She uses ethnographic, qualitative, and design-based research methods to examine typical and emerging practices where youth and adults work together (and at times, in conflict). Collaborations with youth, community partners, educators, and scholars form the basis of her work.  Dr. Booker received her Ph.D. in Education from Stanford University in 2007.
