Angi received her doctorate from Indiana University in Special Education and African Studies in May 2010. Her dissertation examined the role of culture and local context in developing the curriculum for students with developmental disabilities at a special school in Tanzania. In 2008-2009, she was a Fulbright IIE Student and conducted her dissertation research in Lushoto, Tanzania.
Angi has worked with people with disabilities for the last 13 years as a teacher, consultant, researcher, and paraprofessional. Her areas of interest are early intervention, assistive technology, international special education, and culturally and linguistically diverse learners. Her current research agenda includes work on teacher education in early intervention, immigrant family experiences in the early intervention system, and assessment. She currently has a grant through the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care to develop professional development training courses in the state Core Competencies and Preschool Learning Standards.
