I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Sociology and a pre-doctoral trainee in the Center for Demography and Ecology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

My research focuses on crime, deviance, and social control, using quantitative methods.

I am interested in the ways in which criminal justice systems both reflect and exacerbate inequalities within populations, as well as how criminal justice institutions – especially police agencies – can work with the communities they serve to improve public safety, while protecting civil rights.

Other research interests include immigration enforcement, race/ethnicity, and gender.

My research is supported by the Horowitz Foundation for Social Policy.
