I am a postdoc in the Department of Sociology at Princeton University. My research and teaching interests include social and spatial inequality, urban sociology, computational social science, and quantitative methods.
My research integrates a classic sociological interest in the social organization of cities and the development of innovative methods to address fundamental questions about the spatial structure of residential segregation, the causes and consequences of segregation at different geographic scales, and the role of the built environment in segregation processes. I was awarded a James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Award in Studying Complex Systems, which funds my current research.
I have a Ph.D. in sociology from Yale University. My dissertation introduced two methodological innovations for measuring and analyzing segregation and examined the role of spatial boundaries in structuring patterns of racial segregation in U.S. cities. My dissertation was awarded the 2017 Marvin B. Sussman Dissertation Prize from Yale University.
Prior to joining Yale’s graduate program, I received an MPA from George Washington University and I was a Presidential Management Fellow and Research Analyst at the U.S. Department of Transportation, Brookings Institution, and Government Accountability Office.
