I am a scholar of racial inequality whose interests include race and ethnicity, urban sociology, policing, and mobility.

My dissertation, "Grounds for Eviction: Race, Mobility, and Policing in the Antelope Valley" examines the relationship between policing and segregation using a case study of Black movement to the Antelope Valley, in Los Angeles County.

This site holds my curriculum vitae, information about my dissertation research and publications, and information about a dataset on Housing Choice Vouchers that I am working to make available for public use.
