I am a Ph.D. candidate in Education in the Education Policy and Program Evaluation concentration at Harvard University and an IES PIER Fellow through Harvard's Center for Education Policy Research. I study education policy and inequality, with a focus on postsecondary education and transitions to college and the work force. I primarily use quantitative methods, particularly experimental and quasi-experimental research designs, to provide rigorous evidence on the effects of education policies and programs.

My work has been published in peer-reviewed journals including Economics of Education Review and Industrial & Labor Relations Review, and featured in news outlets including The Chronicle of Higher Education, Education Week, Inside Higher Ed, and USA Today.
