About Me

fullsizeoutput_13c7

I am a PhD Candidate in Sociology in the Departments of Sociology and Policy Analysis & Management at Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. My research uses quantitative and demographic methods to examine the intersection of family life with the U.S. criminal justice, immigration, and child welfare systems, focusing on racial/ethnic and socioeconomic inequality in the wellbeing and social integration and instability of children, adolescents, and young adults.

Prior to beginning my graduate studies, I was a member of the research team at the Institute for Women’s Policy Research in Washington, DC where my work focused on gender, racial/ethnic, and socioeconomic inequality in economic security and labor market experiences in the U.S. I completed an undergraduate degree in economics and French at Wellesley College in 2010.
