About me

I'm a Ph.D. candidate 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 mostly quantitative methods. My ongoing dissertation research examines the relationship between jails and health inequality in the context of two recent public health catastrophes: the prescription opioid crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic. My research has been published in the Annual Review of Criminology, RSF: Russel Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences, and Socius. I also co-coordinate the Center for the Study of Wealth and Inequality Seminar Series, am a graduate student researcher at the Columbia Justice Lab, and am a past elected steward of Student Workers of Columbia  - UAW Local 2710.
