About Me

I am an Assistant Professor of Management at Rady School of Management at UC San Diego, and my research focuses on gender inequality in the workplace.

My research is motivated by the following questions:

  • How does gender inequity in career advancement and opportunities manifest differently in today's firms and labor markets?

  • How does growing awareness of the pervasiveness of gender discrimination change how people evaluate men and women?

  • How do male and female leaders make decisions about providing sponsorship, a type of career support that facilitates junior employees' career advancement?

I combine quantitative and qualitative methods to answer these questions. My mixed-methods approach allows me to explore why certain gender differences exist without losing sight of how these aggregate to produce macro-level patterns in career trajectories, firms, and labor markets. My research program has been recognized with several awards, including the Carnegie Mellon University Henry J. Galliot Presidential Fellowship, Tepper School of Business Goodman Doctoral Dissertation Award, Tepper School of Business Salancik Doctoral Dissertation Fellowship, and the Tepper School of Business Simon Doctoral Dissertation Award.

I received my Ph.D. (2021) and M.Sc. (2017) in Organizational Behavior and Theory from Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University. I attended Wellesley College for my undergraduate degree and earned a B.A. (2013) in Psychology, with a minor in Art History. Prior to joining Tepper, I worked in Washington, D.C. in market research.
