She is principal investigator of several large, mixed-methods research projects being conducted in partnership with the School District of Philadelphia (SDP). Her current and recent federally funded projects total more than $7 million and include an efficacy study of an integrated literacy and science curriculum in Philadelphia kindergarten classrooms, funded by the U.S. Department of Education and the Institute of Education Sciences, and two mixed-methods studies of school climate and discipline in Philadelphia schools, funded by the U.S. Department of Justice and National Institute of Justice. Previously, she was co-principal investigator for the i3 evaluation of the scale-up of Reading Recovery.

    Dr. Gray’s Stoneleigh Fellowship focuses on building SDP’s capacity to pilot, evaluate, and scale up innovative approaches to improving school climate. She holds a PhD in education policy from the University of Pennsylvania, where she was an Institute of Education Sciences pre-doctoral training fellow, and where she currently teaches mixed-methods and other research methods courses.
