Sociologist and Demographer
I’m currently a dual-title PhD candidate in Sociology and Demography with a minor in Social Data Analytics at Pennsylvania State University and an expected graduation date of Spring 2020. My research applies a social networks perspective to disentangle how our connections both reproduce and challenge systems of social inequality. I am interested in developing statistical methodologies that can better address these issues and applying these methods to study social phenomena such as immigration, health, terrorism, and bullying. My work has been published in Demography, Social Networks, Journal of Quantitative Criminology, and Sociology of Education.
