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 and inequality, economic sociology, family demography, welfare states, and emotions and mental health. My dissertation, Feeling Unequal, investigates the relationship between mental health and contemporary social inequalities.
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 Social Science from Columbia University, where I was a Fulbright Scholar.
From 2008 to 2010, I was as a Senior Policy Adviser in the UK Prime Minister’s Strategy Unit, providing research, data analysis and advice across domestic policy issues. I am a fellow of the British Royal Society for the Arts.
