I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from Duke University in 2020 where I studied issues related to education and education policy, organizational theory, and stratification. My research examines 1) whether differences in school organizational structure have consequences for equity and 2) how students and families experience classrooms and schools. I previously attended Princeton University (BA Sociology ’11) and the Harvard Graduate School of Education (MA Education Policy and Management ’13).
My professional experience includes work as an after-school classroom teacher and as a data analyst for a state education agency. I have consulted on data strategy projects for two states, a large district and a charter school network. I was a member of the 2018 Education Pioneers DC Metro Area Cohort. I hope to continue using research and analysis to improve organizational decision-making processes and effectiveness.
