RESEARCH

My primary research interests join the individual spatial assimilation and structural place stratification literatures to explore racial and ethnic disparities in wealth. I have published several articles that examine racial and ethnic determinants of homeownership, which highlight the importance of home equity as the primary source of wealth among American households. My research aims to reduce racial and ethnic stratification by generating data driven evidence that informs policy and avenues for future research. My secondary interests fall under health disparities by race, class and gender and include two publications. My tertiary interests examine how family courts perpetuate and extend race, class and gender disparities. In sum, my research crosses disciplinary boundaries, seeking to interpret mechanisms that form race, class and gender inequalities and offer suggestions for achieving social justice and narrowing these gaps.

TRAINING

My graduate quantitative training was interdisciplinary in nature and included an MA in QMSS at Columbia as well as supplementary training such as HLM with ICPSR.
