About me

I'm a Ph.D. candidate and Paul F. Lazarsfeld Fellow in the department of sociology at Columbia University.  I graduated from Brown University, phi beta kappa, magna cum laude, in 2018 with an Sc.B. in Social Analysis & Research. My primary research interests include poverty, incarceration, and inequality, which I study using a range of quantitative methods. My ongoing dissertation research examines how courts and jails manage social problems related to racism and poverty in the contemporary United States. My research has been published in the Annual Review of Criminology, RSF: Russel Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences, and Socius. I'm also a graduate research fellow at the Columbia Justice Lab, an elected steward of Student Workers of Columbia  - UAW Local 2710, and co-coordinate the Center for the Study of Wealth and Inequality Seminar Series.
