I am a quantitative sociologist with a focus on education and stratification. I study how population-level shifts and policy trends affect the opportunities of vulnerable students, particularly students of color and sexual minorities.
My dissertation uses new and existing population-based data sources to study the educational experiences and outcomes of sexual minority youth. In three studies, I examine variation across cohorts, across local contexts, and across the life course.
At Princeton, I am in my 4th year as a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology, with affiliations in the Office of Population Research and the Woodrow Wilson School.
Before coming to Princeton, I spent two years in London as a Marshall Scholar, two years at the Urban Institute as a research assistant, four years at Swarthmore College as an Economics major, and 18 years in Allentown, PA as an angsty but kindhearted youth.
