This talk will be a combination of a meta discussion about how I developed my research program and the main contributions of some of my projects. Specifically, I will share my journey to find a research program that simultaneously engages both equity and cognitive research. I will discuss connections between my work and Funds of Knowledge, as well as other anthropology-informed work, like Ethnomathematics and studies of the mathematics of Indigenous communities. I will share how one of my current projects with Marta Civil, Project AdeLanTe, implements the principles of anti-deficit learning and teaching, while also building on principles from Funds of Knowledge and Culturally Relevant Pedagogy.
