I’m a PhD candidate in the department of sociology at The Ohio State University and a National Science Foundation graduate research fellow. My research focuses on stratification and inequality, credit and debt, economic insecurity, social policy, and the state. My dissertation project builds off of my master's thesis, in which I examine state-level protections for debtors and their consequences for economic insecurity. This paper has won multiple student paper awards and currently has an invitation to revise and resubmit at the American Journal of Sociology. In other collaborative work, I also study student loan debt, credit card debt, and government credit ratings.
I received my MA in sociology from Ohio State in 2017, and my BS in political science from Florida State University in 2014. In my free time, I enjoy reading fiction, taking long walks, and spending time with my cats, friends, and fiancé.
