She earned a B.S. in computer science from Spelman College and a M.Ed. and Ph.D. in mathematics education from Georgia State University. Dr. Bullock's work spans curriculum studies, urban education, mathematics education and STEM education. She uses theories from urban sociology, cultural studies, literary theory, and science and technology studies to look at how issues and ideologies within mathematics and STEM education grow out of historical precedents. She also examines how power operates within these disciplines to create and maintain racial inequities. Dr. Bullock is a 2017 National Academy of Education/Spencer Foundation postdoctoral fellow. Her work has been published in outlets including Educational Studies, Educational Studies in Mathematics, The Journal of Education, Review of Research in Education, and Teachers College Record as well as several books.
