I am a Ph.D. candidate in Sociology at Harvard University. My research examines inequality and opportunity in the United States, with an emphasis on the policies that seek to impact social mobility. More specifically, my work focuses on the predictors of sub-national variation in intergenerational economic mobility, including health, race, and education.
My research is forthcoming in Demography and has been published in the Annual Review of Sociology. My work has been funded by the Doris Duke Fellowship at the University of Chicago, the Women in Public Policy Fellowship at the Harvard Kennedy School, and the Presidential Public Service fellowship at Harvard University.
I have served as a Fellow with the Kentucky Highlands Investment Corporation and the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation at the Department of Health and Human Services, and I have interned with the White House Domestic Policy Council in the Office of Urban Affairs and Economic Mobility.
I hold a A.B. in Government from Cornell University and an Ed.M. in International Education Policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
