Graduate Student, Boston University

Lindsey Kaler is a third year doctoral student in Special Education (Advisor: Dr. Nathan Jones). She is a fellow in the Project LINC cohort and is federally funded by a training grant from the Office of Special Education Programs (OSEP). Her research interests center around the intersections of education policy, special education service delivery, and trauma exposure, particularly for students identified with emotional and behavioral disabilities. Her research focuses on applying econometric methods to questions that are relevant to students with disabilities and special education staff, with the ultimate goal of improving in-school and post-school outcomes for students with disabilities. Prior to beginning her program at BU, Lindsey was a special education teacher in public schools in Washington, DC and Arlington, Virginia.
