My name is Chris Chang-Bacon, and I am an assistant professor of education at the University of Virginia School of Education and Human Development.

My research explores equity in multilingual and multicultural contexts. I explore the intersections of language, race, and policy in education.

As a former high school English teacher, K-12 Literacy Coach, and Peace Corps Volunteer, my scholarship stems from over a decade of work in urban, international, multilingual educational settings.
