Building Trust: Reflections of Adults Working With HighSchoolAge Youth in ProjectBased Programs
(Elsevier, 201901)A program leader’s ability to build trust with youth is critical in effective projectbased programs that serve as interventions to support skill development. However, there is little empirical research on the trustbuilding ... 
When is literal meaning inhibited? Evidence from nonsense in the metaphorinduced lexical forgetting paradigm
(American Psychological Association, 201807)A common feature of metaphoric language processing is a conflict between literal and figurative aspects of meaning. A consequence of this is the need to select the most appropriate meaning amongst competing associates when ... 
Classifying Matchbox Manifolds
(Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 201311)Matchbox manifolds are foliated spaces with totally disconnected transversals. Two matchbox manifolds which are homeomorphic have return equivalent dynamics, so that invariants of return equivalence can be applied to ... 
Aperiodicity at the Boundary of Chaos
(American Mathematical Society, 201704)We consider the dynamical properties of C∞variations of the flow on an aperiodic Kuperberg plug K. Our main result is that there exists a smooth 1parameter family of plugs K for ∈ (−a, a) and a < 1, such that: (1) The ... 
Manifoldlike Matchbox Manifolds
(American Mathematical Society, 201704)A matchbox manifold is a generalized lamination, which is a continuum whose arccomponents define the leaves of a foliation of the space. The main result of this paper implies that a matchbox manifold which is manifoldlike ... 
Wild Solenoids
(American Mathematical Society, 201702)A weak solenoid is a foliated space defined as the inverse limit of finite coverings of a closed compact manifold M. The monodromy of a weak solenoid defines an equicontinuous minimal action on a Cantor space X by the ... 
Strategic Behavior and Learning In AllPay Auctions: An Empirical Study Using Crowdsourced Data
(Springer Verlag, 201902)We analyze human behavior in crowdsourcing contests using an allpay auction model where all participants exert effort, but only the highest bidder receives the reward. We let workers sourced from Amazon Mechanical Turk ... 
Objects without Texts: Mimbres Painted Bowls and the Problematics of Interpretation
(Wiley, 20190306) 
Standardization, Democratization, and Writing Programs
(National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), 201902) 
A crosslake comparison of crustacean zooplankton communities in the Laurentian Great Lakes, 19972016
(Elsevier, 201906)Spring and summer openwater crustacean zooplankton communities were examined across all five Laurentian Great Lakes from 1997 to 2016. Spring communities were dominated by calanoid (lakes Superior, Huron and Michigan) or ... 
Has the Suburbanization of Ethnic Economies Created New Opportunities for Income Attainment?
(Wiley, 201803)Objective. International migration to the U.S. suburbs has upended many theories of urban inequality and immigrant incorporation, including ethnic economy theory. This paper is the most comprehensive study conducted to ... 
Relative tax rates, proximity and cigarette tax noncompliance: Evidence from a national sample of littered cigarette packs
(SAGE Publications, 20190108)We analyze data about cigarette tax compliance from the first USbased national scale littered cigarette packs collection. We code each pack based on whether an appropriate tax had been paid at the location where it was ... 
RIGIDITY OF CONVEX DIVISIBLE DOMAINS IN FLAG MANIFOLDS
(Mathematical Sciences Publishers, 20190305)In contrast to the many examples of convex divisible domains in real projective space, we prove that up to projective isomorphism there is only one convex divisible domain in the Grassmannian of pplanes in R2p when p > ... 
REGULARIZING NONLINEAR SCHRO ̈DINGER EQUATIONS THROUGH PARTIAL OFFAXIS VARIATIONS
(Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, 20190429)We study a class of focusing nonlinear Schr ̈odingertype equations derived recently by Dumas, Lannes and Szeftel within the mathematical de scription of high intensity laser beams [7]. These equations incorporate the ... 
Periodic Corrugations to Increase Efficiency of Thermophotovoltaic Emitting Structures
(AIP Publishing, 20190206)In this letter we consider the question of designing insulator/metal thermovoltaic structures with periodically corrugated interfaces that give optimal performance based on the metric of useful power density. Using a Monte ... 
The demise of catalysis, but new functions arise: pseudoenzymes as the phoenixes of the protein world
(Portland Press, 20190201)Pseudoenzymes are noncatalytic homologues of enzymes and are found in most enzyme families. Although lacking catalytic activity and sometimes referred to as “dead” enzymes, they instead resemble phoenixes because the loss ... 
Designing KnowledgeInUse Assessments to Promote Deeper Learning
(Wiley, 20190404)Contemporary views on learning highlight that deep learning occurs not simply by accumulating knowledge, but by using and applying knowledge as one engages in disciplinary activity. Increasingly, those concerned with ... 
Ethnic Economies in the Age of Retail Chains: Comparing the Presence of ChainAffiliated and Independently Owned Ethnic Restaurants in Ethnic Neighbourhoods
(Taylor & Francis, 20180418)Many entrepreneurs in ethnic economies start out by serving fellow community members in their local ethnic neighbourhood. Large corporations, however, are creating retail chains that target the ethnic market and expand ... 
The power of Latina/x/o studies beyond the ivory tower and inside prison walls.
(Palgrave Macmillan, 20181113)Although Blacks and Latinas/xs/os make up about 31% of the US population (13% and 18%, respectively), they make up about 59% of the prison population (40% and 19%, respectively) (Sakala 2014). What power can Latina/x/o ... 
Explanatory Modeling in Science Through TextBased Investigation: Testing the Efficacy of the Project READI Intervention Approach
(SAGE Publications, 20190315)This article reports the results of a randomized control trial of a semesterlong intervention designed to promote ninthgrade science students’ use of textbased investigation to create explanatory models of biological ...
