As a demographically trained sociologist with a background in public policy, I study inequalities in the lives of stigmatized youth. In Summer 2019, I'll be joining the sociology faculty at Notre Dame, where I'll also be an affiliate of the Center for Research on Educational Opportunity.

My sole-authored research has been published in Sociology of Education and Educational Researcher and the Journal of Adolescent Health. My work has received awards from the Education and Population Sections of the ASA, as well as from the Educational Problems Division of the SSSP. 

My research and training have previously been supported by a Marshall Scholarship, a Truman Scholarship, and a fellowship from the American Education Research Association.

Before finding my disciplinary home as a sociologist, I studied philosophy at the London School of Economics, education at UCL's Institute of Education, and economics at Swarthmore College. My research and teaching interests continue to be informed by these diverse fields.
