I am a visiting instructor of economics at College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts and a PhD candidate in social science at Caltech. My dissertation research uses modern econometric techniques to address questions about the interactions of race, prison, and crime. I am particularly interested in:
- Ways that racial disparities propagate through the criminal justice system, and society at large
- Origins and persistence of discriminatory institutions
- Economics of gender and sexual politics
I am committed to making economic concepts accessible to as many people as possible.
