I am a PhD Candidate in Sociology and Social Policy at Princeton University, as the A. Watson Armour, III '33 Centennial Fellow. My major interests are in stratification/ inequality, economic sociology, family demography, welfare states, and emotions and mental health. My dissertation, Feeling Unequal, investigates how socio-economic inequality affects thoughts and feelings about the self, and vice-versa.
Before starting my PhD at Princeton, I was a Research Fellow in Columbia University’s Population Research Center (2011-13) and a Visiting Research Fellow in Public Policy at the University of Oxford (2010-11). I graduated double-first class in Social and Political Science from the University of Cambridge, and have a Masters in Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences from Columbia University, where I was a Fulbright Scholar.
From 2008 to 2010, I was a Senior Policy Adviser in the UK Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit, providing research, data analysis and advice across domestic policy issues.
