I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. The thread connecting each of my individual research projects is an abiding interest in health, families, and social inequality.

I hold an M.S. in Statistics (Northwestern University, 2016), M.A. in Sociology (Northwestern University, 2015), and B.A. in Sociology and Anthropology (Indiana University, 2011). I am a member of the interdisciplinary Society, Biology and Health Cluster, associated with Cells to Society (C2S): The Center on Social Disparities and Health at Northwestern University’s Institute for Policy Research (IPR).
