I am an Assistant Professor in the Sociology Department of The City College of New York. Previously, I was a postdoctoral scholar at the Center on Poverty and Inequality at Stanford University. I received my Ph.D. in Sociology from the University of California - Los Angeles.

My research focuses on the relationships between social policy, social stratification, neighborhood inequality, and the wellbeing of families and children. I have pursued two lines of inquiry: one that examines the relationship between neighborhood segregation, subsidized housing, and fair housing laws and one that examines the relationship between housing policy, household formation, and the transition to adulthood.
